Mind in Croydon

The Arsenal in the Community Tournament 26th July

The winners!

The winners!

After a slow start in the Arsenal Inclusion Tournament the Active Minds/CPFC Foundation mental health football team ‘The Croydon Eagles’ came back strong to win the Arsenal Community Plate in the bright sunshine of North London.

We were pitched against our old friends from East Living and a well organised Arsenal Medical Foundation team in the first round and were unlucky to come away with only a few points. But our players got into their stride to win matches against Danby Rovers and the Elfrida Society.

Sadly there was no plate to celebrate with (it’s in the post!) but we will be in the first Arsenal programme of the new season which by sheer coincidence is against Palace.

Many thanks to Luke, the organizers, volunteers and everyone involved especially the players and teams who had travelled from as far afield as Leeds to take part.

We all had a great day out and to come back with a trophy bodes well for our team next season. Sadly we did though have an injury and everyone at Croydon Eagles wishes Tim a speedy recovery from a painful calf tear.
