The Furniture Makers’ Charity recently held its sixth annual Sealy Cup five-a-side football tournament at the Lucozade Powerleague Football Centre in Coventry, with the Whitemeadow Wizards taking home the trophy.

The charity competition - which is sponsored by bed brand Sealy and furniture trade magazine Cabinet Maker - saw 15 teams from furnishing retailers, manufacturers and distributors competing, including Crofts & Assinder, Designer Contracts, Hypnos and Lee Longlands.

Alongside the tournament - which the charity said was its biggest yet - each team got to play against the Burnley FC’s Vintage Clarets, a team of former professional football players. Following the tournament, competitors were treated to a barbeque.

“This is the first time I’ve attended the Sealy Cup tournament and I came away incredibly impressed by the event,” said Furniture Makers’ master Hayden Davies. “It was a fantastic day out, not just for the many players from across the furniture industry, but their families too - which made it a very special and social occasion.

“I have to pay tribute to the commitment and efforts of all the players, who threw themselves into the competition with vigour. The event is now very much a part of the Furniture Makers’ calendar and I’m sure next year will be even more closely fought. As always, we would like to thank our main sponsor Sealy for helping make the event a resounding success.”
