Church Wilne Rotary Club Up For The Cup
Rams in Kenya Cup - Walking Football Tournament

13th March 2020

Derby County Community Trust held a walking football tournament on Friday 13th March 2020 at Springwood Leisure Centre.

The Rams in Kenya Cup was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Church Wilne. The aim of the tournament was to raise funds for the Rams in Kenya project in which volunteers from our community go to Kenya to work in slum schools in Nakuru. Church Wilne Rotary Club was first involved in the project in 2019 when a Club member became a volunteer and upon his return cemented links between the two organisations. The result of this latest collaboration was over 60 players of 50 plus years taking part in a wonderful morning of sport and fellowship. Those with long memories will remember Rams Legend, Roger Davies, who brought together a team of ex - Derby County Legends including Shane Nicholson and Michael Johnson to partake.

Local League referees gave generously of their time to prevent the players running during matches.

The final was contested between the Legends and DCCT A side who gave an excellent example of sportsmanship and quality football for the assembled spectators. After close opening encounters the Derby County Legends proved why they played professionally and ended the match worthy winners.
