A team of football playing Firefighters' have won a local Charity 5-a-side tournament organised by St Marys Youth Initiative .

The event took place at St Mary's School and raised £100 to help fund the local 'Community Hut'. The project is hoping to raise £80,000 towards the building which will be situated at the Grove in Bridgnorth.

Eight teams took part in the event including local Police officers, firefighters, the Beavers' group, Bridgnorth Town Youth team, Bridgnorth Spartans and 3 other youth teams, including an all girls team.

The Bridgnorth Retained Firefighters' started their tournament by beating the local Police team before making their way to the final, and being crowned overall champions.
