Peace Football Match - 2 September 2018

On Sunday 2 September, a football match was held to celebrate Nutmeg’s 10 year anniversary.

The 9 a side football match, funded by the Big Lottery's award for all grant, took place at Powerleague in Mill Hill.

Darwin, Nutmeg cofounder, captained the blue team and Rui, Nutmeg cofounder, captained the red team.Both teams were eager to win which made the match very competitive and entertaining.

In first 10mins the blazing blues took the lead with their youthful pace and skills appearing too much for the reds to handle. After squandering several opportunities, the red team's team luck changed and they found themselves back into the game as half-time approached. At half-time the blue team led 3-2. 

The drama continued in the second half with many twists and turns, plus plenty of goals. However the most important thing is that everyone played with respect. No one lost sight as to why we were there, which is to celebrate Nutmeg charity's achievements and influence in the community over the last 10 years.

One of the players said "it's so good to be around a group of people who just want to promote positive vibes, I think this needs to be the norm".

When all is said and done, the final score doesn't really matter. But in case you're wondering, Rui's remarkable red team won!
