Oldham Athletic Community Trust (OACT) have recently held their second and third OACT Schools Cup competitions this week, with seven different schools attending.
The series of competitions, which are being held in partnership with Ultimate Products, are designed to increase competitive opportunities for children across the borough with several different venues being used across the events.
To celebrate the FIFA Women’s World Cup a girls only event was held which saw South Failsworth, Westwood Academy, Hey With Zion & St Matthews take part. As part of the event each child received an electronic prize, courtesy of Ultimate Products.
In addition a year two festival was held, with St Pauls, Westwood Academy, Littlemoor & Blackshaw Lane participating.
Jack Garside, OACT Primary Stars Lead commented: "It was fantastic to host the events and a pleasure to welcome Ultimate Products once again.
"Ultimate Products, like ourselves, are passionate about providing opportunities for young people across Oldham and through this unique partnership they have gone above and beyond.”
Craig Holden, Group HR & Operations Director added: "Ultimate Products are delighted to announce our partnership with such a well-established football club.
"Oldham Athletic and the Community Trust is a renowned brand both locally as well as nationally, and it gives us great pleasure to be working in collaboration with them.
"We share a very similar ethos in providing opportunities to the local community, and ensuring that Oldham remains a dynamic area."
The next OACT Schools Cup competition event will be held in July, based at the brand new E-ACT Royton & Crompton Academy site, featuring 12 OACT school partners.
