On Sunday Newcastle United Foundation hosted their annual 'Men's Health Tournament' at Walker Activity Dome to celebrate the end of 'National Men's Health Week'. The tournament was a real success with 8 teams registering to take part with 50 men in total in attendance. The day consisted of 27 matches, 196 goals and one eventual winner in 'Terry's All-Stars' (pictured). Kenny Watson won player of the tournament, the 57 year old was chosen for his excellent attitude and constant encouragement shown to his team mates and other teams in the tournament.

Tournament organiser Glen Taylor, Community Health Coach at Newcastle United Foundation said "Sundays 'Men's Health Tournament' was a real success, each team played a minimum of 6 matches which equated to a 90 minute football match. It was great to see so many men working together in such a competitive environment and exert themselves like they did. The work we do here at the Foundation helping adult men lead healthier lifestyles is of real importance to both us and the community. I want to thank the 50 men that took part on Sunday as well as my two fantastic volunteers on making it such a brilliant day for all."
