Wessex FC, proudly wearing Patrick Lakin armbands, won the Cup of Nations, held on April 29, 2017 in Nice, France.
A total of 13 countries took part and our proud JP2F4S team played France in the final and were victorious. Prizes were presented by former England footballer Linvoy Primus MBE.
On route to the final, JP2F4S sports club Wessex FC played all the teams and only conceded two goals throughout the tournament and were by far the most skilful team, built on years of playing together with the support from JP2F4S.
Bilal Aalouache won best player of the tournament and Devonte Totesaut was joint top scorer with nine goals.
Wessex FC was one of the original clubs to join JP2F4S and the team is made up of former rival gangs from the estates in Westbourne Park, West London. Where once they would break into the grounds of St Mary of the Angels Primary School to play football, they now have a bond of friendship through the sport that they love, all with the help of JP2F4S.
Their commitment to their sport and each other has been rewarded with great success on the pitch in Power League tournaments as well as now at the Cup of Nations.
Wessex FC is flourishing as a team and as a group of individuals, striving to improve their lot. A great example of the work JP2F4S can do, with your support!
