Cambridge Cyrenians participate in the Tommy McLafferty Cup
The fourth annual Tommy McLafferty football tournament took place in May. Organised by Cambridge South Rotary Club and local organisations that support the homeless, 10 teams sportingly battled it out for the trophy. Despite not winning a single game, Cambridge Cyrenians team very much enjoyed the day, with Marlene Schmid receiving a commendation for her play.
The tournament is named after Tommy McLafferty, who was an accomplished footballer and a member of the homeless community, who died in 2009.
