Shots on target
CHROME IN THE COMMUNITY CUP
CHROME Motors of Macclesfield held this year’s Chrome in the Community Soccer Cup on playing fields opposite the Beech Lane Showroom.
The company invited 16 under 11s local junior football clubs to the free to enter event. A highly competitive contest ensued seeing all 16 teams play in group stages over a fivehour period.
The eventual winners of the event were Shots FC. In a tightly fought contest against Lisbon, Shots eventually won on sudden death penalties.
Chrome were joined by several local businesses including PR Jones the Jewellers and local accountancy business Bennett Brooks in supporting the day.
The tournament was first devised last year by Chrome owner Danny Towns and has become a well-supported local community event.
The tournament was attended by newly elected Mayor of Macclesfield Liz Durham.
Trophies and medals for the day came courtesy of Avanti, another Macclesfield-based business.
The day was a roaring success with more than 1,200 in attendance and the community spirit was in full flow.
Danny Towns, Chrome owner, commented: “What a wonderful day. These young boys and girls are a credit to the clubs they represent.
“It gives Chrome immense pride to host an event like this and I would like to thank the community of Macclesfield for turning out and making the day an outstanding success.
“A special thanks should go to Tytherington High School for their continued support of this day with the loan of school equipment and playing fields. The community pulled together and we had a superb time.” Photos: Peter Hilton www.peterhiltonphotography.co.uk
