Jersey International Business School held a charity football tournament that raised £3,300 for Jersey 2 Africa 4 Football Foundation. Eight teams participated in the JIBS 4 Africa Challenge Trophy at Springfield Stadium, with each team donating £400 to take part. The seven-a-side round-robin tournament required that teams play with a minimum of one playing female at all times. The champions of the main competition were the JFA Community Team, with Stonehage Fleming winning the plate competition. Jersey 2 Africa 4 Football Foundation is a Jersey-based non-profit organisation, whose mission is dedicated to improving young lives in Africa on and off the field through football. Ricky Weir, Founder of the foundation, said: “The games were played with the good spirit, humour and sportsmanship we had hoped for. We have been encouraged by all the positive feedback and will begin discussing plans for a follow-up tournament in the summer.”
