The Nick Mowl Cup was held in memory of popular local footballer and coach Nick Mowl, who died by suicide a year ago, and proved to be a huge success.
Hundreds of people turned up to the tournament that took place at Solihull Moors, which will help raise funds for The Kaleidoscope Plus Group – who will use the money to help establish a Suicide Prevention Text Line service.
The money raised will help us employ a co-ordinator and a text service operator who will lead in the management and co-ordination of a national text service which will keep individuals who are experiencing suicidal thoughts safe from harm.
The event comprised of open age five-a-side tournament as well as contests for U10s, U11s and U12s, plus a family fun day.
Many former local professionals including Paul Robinson, Stylian Petrov, Maik Taylor, Darren Carter, James Beattie and Dele Adebloa played on the day.
