Brunel University played host to the North West London Mental Health League Summer Cup over the summer holidays, a tournament that was eventually won by Everton in the Community’s Imagine Your Goals team.

Everton IYG were joined by Brighton Albion in the Community, Hounslow Hawks, Riverside Rangers and eight other teams to make three groups, and they began the tournament with three wins out of three in their assembly, beating the Hawks 1-0, Albion 2-1 and most emphatically putting four past The Bridge with an excellent performance.

This was followed by an impressive 2-0 win over QPR in the semi-final, a tie that some had touted to go to the West London outfit, before a 3-1 victory over Riverside in the final that ensured IYG’s seventh national title, with one goal from Danny Lewis and a brace from Mark Lunt.

In addition to the winners’ medals, Everton IYG also picked up the Fair Play Award for their sportsmanship exhibited throughout the tournament.
