Mayor Meets Wednesfield FC

Yesterday the Mayor of Wolverhampton met Wednesfield FC in the Mayors Parlour.

The Mayor Cllr Elias Mattu with his Mayoress invited newly promoted West Midlands Regional Premier League Club Wednesfield FC to meet with him, so that he could congratulate the Club personally for winning promotion

Mayor Mattu went onto state how proud he was of the teams performance, and their great disciplinary record. Going through their League games with out one Red Card!

The Mayor had certainly done his homework…He also congratulated the Club on providing organised sport for children 6 and upwards. He said he was impressed that up to 230 youngsters played their football in an organised way with Wednesfield FC.

He also said that he was disappointed to learn that the club had recently suffered a break in, and thieves had stolen the mowing equipment. He then offered the Club (from his own pocket) a donation towards the start and the replacement of the equipment….its not for me to say how much this donation was, but I felt it was a very generous act from a very distinguished man!

The Club players viewed the City Silver and appeared to enjoy the occasion greatly. I know I did and all the Wednesfield Councillors that could attend that were present, thought that it was a real nice event.
