One community. One club.

Community is at the heart of Cheshunt Football Club.

11 Aug 2017

Everything we do is aimed at promoting health and wellbeing in our community and bringing people together. On 29th July, 2017, that’s exactly what we did at the annual pre-season football tournament, the Cheshunt FC Community Cup Day.
The tournament was held at Cheshunt Football Club and featured Cheshunt FC alongside local clubs Harlow Town FC and Hertford Town FC. Spurs Ladies conducted an open training session and there was lots of other football-related fun.

The Community Cup was held in memory of 16-year old Robbie Lea, who tragically drowned in a lake at the Lee Valley Park in May. Local boy Robbie had gone for a swim with his friends when he got into difficulties. He leaves behind a devastated family and his younger brother Mason, 5. Mason, and his fellow mascots, led the Cheshunt team onto the pitch at the start of the first game.

The community came together on the day to celebrate great football and raise some much needed funds. The rain didn’t dampen any enthusiasm and Cheshunt FC are pleased to announce that together with local football fans, they raised over £1000. This money will be used to help fund an awareness campaign to educate people about the dangers of swimming in open water.

We would like thank everyone who joined us at the Community Cup Day. Special mention to Lanes Estate Agents and Lanes New Homes for their sponsorship and to many local businesses who donated raffle prizes.
One Community: One Club.
