Liverpool County FA’s Inclusion Team welcomed old adversaries Street Soccer Northern Ireland to Walton Hall Park on 28 February – and this time, the team from Merseyside were victorious.
Having last met in the Six Nations Cup in Belfast back in December 2019, a game that saw Liverpool County FA’s Inclusion Team defeated on penalties to finish fourth in the tournament, both sides were keen to face each other again if a chance presented itself.
That chance came at the end of February, as Walton Hall Park played host to an 11-a-side community friendly match – and Liverpool County FA’s Inclusion Team got revenge for their defeat at the end of 2019.
“We had a fantastic time over in Belfast in December, where Street Soccer Northern Ireland hosted the tournament,” explained Liverpool County FA Football Development Officer, Stu Carrington.
“The lads had a really amazing time over there, so it was a pleasure to return the favour and invite the boys from Street Soccer Northern Ireland over to play the return fixture at Walton Hall Park.
“After losing on penalties over in Belfast, it was nice to get our revenge on them, beating them 8-5!
“The game was played in the right spirit and everyone enjoyed the day.”
