FOUNDATION DAY 2016
Last weekend saw Foundation Day 2016 take place with huge success as members of the Cardiff City First Team and DVP squad tried their hand at an array of sports alongside our Fun Fair before the match.
If you missed it, watch Craig Noone’s surprise visit to young City supporter, Jamie, HERE.
Congratulations are in order for Anthony Pilkington, who was awarded the PFA Player in the Community award, receiving his trophy on the Cardiff City Stadium pitch prior to kick-off.
At half-time, the Cardiff City Women’s team also took to the pitch, along with representatives from Arriva Trains Wales, to parade the FAW Women’s Cup, which they had won the weekend before.
Our Half Time entertainment was as eventful as ever, as the Foundation’s Futsal squad took each other on in a ‘last man standing’ competition with Zorb Balls supplied by Impact Soccer.
FIXTURES AND RESULTS
On Sunday 24th, Cardiff City Women’s team followed up their Cup success with an emphatic 11-0 home League victory over Newcastle Emlyn. You can see all ELEVEN goals on our YouTube channel here!
