northolt cup st josephs - Empowering young people through sports

5 October 2022

Over two Friday evenings in September, the YMCA St Paul’s Group Youth Team organised and ran two 8-a-side football tournaments for young people, hosted at Northolt Rectory Park. 

The Northolt Cup saw eight teams of young players coming together for one of our most popular community football tournaments to date. 

In what proved to be two extremely competitive tournaments, the 12–15-year-olds competition was won by St Joseph’s U15s (pictured above), whilst the Northolt Warriors lifted the winners’ cup in the 16-21 age group.

The tournament was made possible thanks to funding from London Youth. Our two peer leaders received training from London Youth on how to plan and deliver this event designed to engage young people.
