Last Friday saw the third Woods Hardwick Football tournament at AFC Kempston Rovers’ ground. With the last tournament taking place in 2019, it’s been a long time coming!
The evening started in entertaining fashion with a 3-0 victory to team DevCon, despite the great efforts from renowned shot-stopper, Calum Wilson for TechCommIT Utd (a mix of our Technical and Commercial Architecture departments).
