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
