Looking back on two action-packed months
Another busy summer at the Community Sports Foundation (CSF) is coming to an end.
Here’s our short review on some of the key events and programmes that helped to make it such a memorable July and August:
The summer kicked off with the nineteenth annual Summer Cup, held at Easton & Otley College.
The two-day tournament featured over 230 local youth teams and 5000 spectators.
Over 1,300 young participants joined us at a host of Soccer School venues across Norfolk, including – for the first time – our new community hub, The Nest.
Youngsters at Carrow Park received a surprise visit from City’s Christoph Zimmermann, who joined the children for a Q&A session, photographs and small-sided games.
The finale was an exclusive Grant Holt Soccer School held at The Nest.
A record 5,514 runners returned to the streets of Norwich for the fourth Run Norwich event.
The race was started by Canaries legends Wes Hoolahan and Russell Martin, both who have been heavily involved with the charity’s work through its association with Norwich City Football Club.
Tens of thousands of enthusiastic supporters lined the city centre course, and as well as the 390+ volunteers, live music and cheer zones, they helped create a special atmosphere for the runners to race in.
