Massive thanks to everyone that braved the weather on Sunday 23rd, and came down to support our Charity Football Funday! The event was held at Ruskin Sports Village and brought together people from all over St Helens and the surrounding areas, for a day of football (in the rain!).

This was a great opportunity to showcase our very own Veterans select team, made up of players from the Army, RAF, Navy, STF Team members and civilians. This was the first time they had played together as a team and great to be representing a Tri-Service of players.

First up it was Standing Tall Foundation Veterans Team Select vs Pilkington FC Veterans Select. The game was really competitive and hard fought with plenty of goals and Ruskin Select coming away with a 4-3 win.

Next up was the  Rainford Ladies Athletic  U9’s vs Pilkington Ladies U10’s during the main match half time and the little Rainford ladies coming away with a 1-0 win.

It was a fantastic day and we are extremely grateful for the donations we received which will all go towards providing Wellbeing support to people in the community and beyond.

Congratulations to all the players from Pilkington FC and Rainford Ladies Athletic not to mention our very own STF Veteran Select side who played together for the very first time!

Thanks also to Ewemove Estate Agents in St Helens West for sponsoring the event and Ruskin St.Helens for hosting it!

Here’s to the next one in October, where our STF Selects team will be playing against a Celebrity All Stars team. Watch this space for more details!
