Lewisham Sport T-shirt design

Winner of the T-shirt design

This was the second year of the competition for the design of Lewisham.s T-shirt for the London Youth Games taking place at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre. I was delighted to award the winner, Cadhla, with her prize.

In judging the competition the panel believed that the winning design provided a positive, healthy, smoke free image that showed the benefits of living smoke free, whilst also highlighting something that is needed to perform at a high level.

My thanks to Ray and the rest of the Lewisham Football Partnership for arranging the Celebration Day on Sunday 8 August to promote all the success stories from last season - Millwall FC gaining promotion; Millwall Lionesses first season back in the Women’s Premier Division; Forest Hill Park winning Division 2 West in the Kent County League league and gaining Charter Standard; Lewisham Borough (Community) FC developing an under 16 Youth Academy and gaining Charter Standard; various junior clubs gaining Charter Standard and the Primary School District team winning 3 cups and several clubs further developing girls football plus many more.

The Aims and Objectives of the Lewisham Football Partnership are to increase participation in football at all levels regardless of age; to enable maintenance of accredited football clubs; to increase the number of qualified coaches, referees, officials and volunteers, to look for opportunities to develop the the facility infrastructure to support the football Development Plan and to identify opportunities for investment in football in Lewisham.

It was a great afternoon and although the winning team was Moonshot it was good to see so many people supporting football in Lewisham.

We launched a competition for the design of Lewisham.s T-shirt for the London Youth Games taking place at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre. I was delighted to award the winner, Tara Adeoye, of Bonus Pastor Catholic College a wil and some other goodies.

Tara.s design was really creative and the standard from all the children entering the competition was very high.
