21-May-10by Annie Byrne
At a blistering hot Elland Road in Leeds yesterday, Conference Leeds emerged victorious at the 2010 Mash Media Football Day. A keenly contested final between Conference Leeds and hosts Mash Media saw the ‘home team’ eventually win 2-0. NewcastleGateshead Initiative beat a team from Event UK on penalties to capture third place, following a heated 3rd/4th place play off that saw one red card and a couple of bookings. Ex-professionals, including Graham Roberts, Steve Sedgley and Stuart McCall, bolstered the squads and brought some welcomed experience onto the pitch. The evening saw the resting of weary limbs with the presentation of the trophy and individual awards, followed by a gala dinner and karaoke that lasted long into the night.
