TWO sporty teenagers have organised a football tournament which will be held over two consecutive weekends to raise money for a children’s hospital ward.

Mitchell Sutherland (18) and friend Jorden Busby (17), who play for Swinton Owls FC, will hold the first tournament this Sunday (August 6) from 10.30am to 4pm at Swinton Academy.

Mitchell, of Rawmarsh, said it was the second year they had organised the event in aid of the cystic fibrosis ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

“Jorden’s girlfriend has cystic fibrosis and she spends a lot of time in hospital so that’s why we wanted to raise money for the ward,” said Mitchell.

“Last year we raised around £300 and we’re hoping to better that this year.”

Four teams will compete over the two weekends to win The Cystic Fibrosis Football Cup and money raised will come from the players’ entry fees.

There will also be a raffle, tuck shop, tombola and fun games.

This Sunday, Swinton Owls FC will take on Aston Athletic at 10.30am and at 1pm Cafe Sport B will play Kop End FC.
