A promotion to encourage teenagers to get active in sport was a success at Calderdale College.

College sports development worker Grant Soames worked with the West Riding County Football Association to deliver a “Team 19” five-a-side football tournament.

Fifteen U-19 teams consisting of college students took part on a synthetic pitch.

The college has recently improved its sports facilities and more improvements are planned. A new grassed pitch should be in use by 2014 which will enable similar tournaments involving sports such as rugby to be held.
