Saddleworth 3Ds celebrate 30 years of community football

SADDLEWORTH 3Ds marked its 30th birthday with a celebration of football at their Counthill Road ground.

All 24 teams, from the open-age teams to U7s, got to play while there was also a match involving the coaches.

U16s last game and Open Age team

Each team came out on to the pitch to the Champions League anthem and there were medals for the footballers and for the star player from each match.

It was a day to remember with more than 600 people attending with football the winner, though there were casualties in the coaches’ game as limbs and muscles ached in places they had forgotten existed.

  • Saddleworth 3Ds open-age teams are back in pre-season training at Waterhead Academy each Monday and Thursday (7pm-9pm).

Any players interested in joining can contact first-team manager Steve Laithwaite 07834 549044.
