Football Festival a Great Success

On Saturday 18th October a football festival held at Petre Street brought many dreams into reality, the prospect of seeing organised team sports in our community.

Loads of participants and spectators gathered all day, hopefully the start of things to come (see Petre Street through the ages).

Initiated by Patrick Edwards on behalf of BSN in conjunction with Clinton McKoy (Black History Month) the day began with Earl Marshall Juniors vs Wickersley Juniors followed by Burngreave Juniors vs Birley Spa then adult matches featuring Chinese Prowlers, Siyaya, Boyz in Reggae, African Dreem Team and other attractions.
