This was the second occasion the WFLA held their League Champions Cup and Inter League Cup. In 2022 we had thirteen entrants for each of the cups. This year we had thirty and twenty six respectively.
The weekends events were a great success and judging by the testimonials on social media and those received by email, it seems that everyone had a tremendous weekends walking football. The brilliant weather made the conditions hot for players and officials but everyone seemed to keep themselves hydrated.
Many thanks must go to the staff at Redditch Utd, our venue at the Trico Stadium, who were a tremendous help in making the events go according to plan. All the feedback on the day and the days following have all been highly complimentary about the facilities and staff at the Trico Stadium.
Of course no football events would happen without the referees and we had some excellent officials on board for the weekend, well done guys, the comments on social media regarding your officiating were well deserved.
The teams in the two cup competitions were from all corners of England and Wales. All WFLA competitions are sanctioned by the FA and all member leagues are affiliated to the National Governing Body, the Football Association. There was some top level football played over the weekend and more importantly it was played in the correct spirit.
The events over the 21st and 22nd May were a great success, enjoyed by all and we look forward to increasing the entrants in 2024.
