Lord Mayor Praises Bristol Together Championships

The Lord Mayor of Bristol, The Right Honourable Councillor Jeff Lovell has described the Bristol Together Championships as ‘a very special tournament’ after he attended last week’s hugely successful event.

Wickston Wanderers were crowned 2016 champions on Friday, 24th June at Keynsham Town Football Club – and The Lord Mayor was honoured to have attended.

He said: "It was a huge privilege to attend the Bristol Together Championships, a very special tournament encouraging children to cross boundaries and divides across the city through sport. 

“Twenty of the 35 wards of Bristol and some from South Gloucestershire represented a variety of faiths and nationalities.

“Watching children working together to play football with such passion and commitment was indeed inspirational.”
