The White Ribbon Shield

White Ribbon Shield

White Ribbon Shield

The White Ribbon Shield was a football tournament organised by the Ashburton White Ribbon Committee in conjunction with Mid Canterbury Football. Over 200 people turned up for the event with people enjoying the football and taking home the White Ribbon message.

The tournament featured teams from the Mid Canterbury United FC (MCUFC) and Methven FC. There were seven games from under 10s through to seniors, including one women’s game. The corresponding age grade teams from each club played against each other with the winner getting 3 points.  At the end of the day all the points were tallied and the club with the most points winning the White Ribbon Shield.
