Utilita, the Official Title Partner of the Kids and Girls Cup competitions, recently marked the launch of their partnership with the EFL, with Wycombe Wanderers star Adebayo Akinfenwa on hand to help make the day a memorable one.
Schoolchildren from Rabbsfarm, Marlborough and St Anselm’s Primary Schools took part in a six-a-side tournament to mark the start of the partnership and celebrate the Kids and Girls Cup competitions.
The event was supported by Brentford FC and the Brentford FC Community Sport Trust, who hosted the tournament. Akinfenwa, as well as Brentford FC players Josh Clarke and Joe Hardy and Brentford FC Women’s stars Charlotte Tanner and Nicole Goolab, were in attendance to coach the teams, acting as mentors for the round robin tournament.
Speaking at the launch, Akinfenwa said: “I think initiatives like the Utilita Kids & Girls Cup are a brilliant thing and are a must. To give children the opportunity to play the game and have the ultimate reward of playing on that hallowed turf at Wembley Stadium, which is a dream for many kids and adults, is immense.”
'The Beast' also took part in a Q&A session with the schoolchildren, answering a range of questions about his career, favourite Clubs and players, and more. Watch the full video below!
