Following the success of the Garioch Cup last year, GPH are delighted to once again support the five-week tournament. GPH will be providing the generous prize of a VIP Corporate Match for 10 people to watch Inverurie Locos at Harlaw Park.
The Over 35s football tournament (which kicked off on Sun 29 Oct) is run in partnership with the Inverurie Loco Works F.C., Scottish FA, GPH Builders Merchants and Aberdeen FC Community Trust. The final will be played on Sun 26 Nov at the Garioch Sports Centre.
Stephen Boddie, AFCCT Community Coach in Inverurie said, ‘It’s great to have the Garioch Cup running again this year. It’s important to get more people over the age of 35 years old more active again and this is made even more enjoyable through football. Over 90 people signed up this time.
I would like to say a massive thank you to our partners, especially GPH Builders Merchants for their sponsorship of the Garioch Cup prize, without all their support events like this would not be possible’.
Managing Director, Grant Shewan said: ‘It’s important to GPH that we give back to the community and supporting initiatives like this provides us with a great opportunity to do just that. I look forward to watching the final and finding out who will win the tournament. I’m sure there will be a great turnout of supporters and family and friends of the players’.
