Saughall Colts JFC held its annual football tournament with more than 85 players taking part in a World Cup-style competition.

Before the event kicked off there was a special presentation of a defibrillator to the club by the Emily Ffion Trust.

After discovering the club had been fundraising for a defibrillator, the trust came forward and offered to buy one which was presented to club chairman Steve Richards by trustees John Sowden and Dave Brammer.

Mr Sowden said: “The aim of the trust is to assist in any way we can to help prevent sudden loss of a child and felt that this was something we could help fund and support.

“Emily's brother and cousin are both members of the Colts under-5s and we have many friends here.

“Hopefully the defibrillator will never have to be used and it will just gather dust, but if it's ever needed it's good to know it may save somebody's life.”

 

Colts chairman Steve Richards said: “The club would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to the Emily Ffion Trust for their extremely kind donation.

“We appreciate it so much and feel very proud to be able to honour Emily with a new trophy dedicated to her.”
