Commemorative Tournament success
 Women's Football Events News - 17 Nov 2018
The third annual 1966 Commemorative Women's Sixes Tournament was held at Grantham and proved another success for the tournament organisers, headed by Major Mark Normanton.
Over the two days there were 16 teams involved and the competition also doubled up with the Channing Day Memorial contested by AMS units; Cpl Day was from 3 Medical Regiment and was killed in Afghanistan in October 2012. Major Normanton received the blessing of Cpl Day's mother to present a trophy in her name at the tournament and was honoured to do so.
In the largest grassroots tournament in Army Women's unit football where approaching 100 matches were played the overall winners were 29 Regiment RLC who retained the trophy defeating DMD (SE) in the final;the latter's Pte Edwards was awarded Player of the Tournament.
The Steerment Carter Plate saw 6 Regiment RLC defeat Leonardo in the final. 4 Medical Regiment won the Channing Day Memorial beating 1MWD in the final.
Appreciation was also extended to the match officials provided by the Army FA over the two days.
The Army Football Association was granted one of 66 individual national awards that received funding of £1966 in 2016 from the Football Association made available to support grassroots projects to recognise the 50th anniversary of England's victorious World Cup campaign.
The 1966 Commemorative Tournament was the chosen project to support the excellent work undertaken by Major Normanton and his team and it is delighted to see that the early foundations created have seen the tournament flourish for the benefit of women's grass roots football in the Army.
