The venue hosted the third annual Soccer Cup Challenge, a clash played between Tamworth FC and a select side from Challenge Community Services.
Challenge went into this year’s clash as defending champions and retained the trophy for another 12 months after an impressive 8-2 win.
Barry ‘Coach’ Murphy was delighted his side made it a winning hat-trick.
“I’m a very happy coach,” Murphy told The Leader.
“The team played magnificently well to win the trophy for the third year in a row. Credit to all the players from both sides.”
A notable standout was Harry Wachtel.
