Growing on the success of last year the 2016 Roehampton Community Shield was goal filled and exciting 7 a side tournament – this year we hosted 14 teams from all across London!
was also the first year that event hosted a women’s shield – which we hope will grow in future years. Thank you to all the teams and volunteers who made Roehampton Community Shield 2016 a memorable and feel good event!
I want to give a special thanks to Inga Kempton and Alex Milward who helped to organise the event and to Jo Farmer and the lovely ladies from The Vine London for contacting women’s teams. A huge thank you to the team at Rosslyn Park, all of our participants were in awe of the amazing grounds and facilities. I’m already looking forward to next year’s Tournament!” Jordan
“When the Roehampton Community Shield was created in 2013 , I never dreamt we would be able to work with Rosslyn Park and grow the event to the 2016 numbers. Having people like Jordan and Inga on the team has expanded the tournament from being just a local Roehampton fixture to involving teams from across London. To the he volunteers who helped on the day, I would like to say a huge thank you, for all the setting up, running the stalls and packing away. I am looking forward to the next Roehampton Community Shield and working more with Rosslyn Park and all the teams! Together we can continue to “Fight poverty through football” Luke.
