Now in its second year, the Goals 4 GOSH football tournament, which took place at Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park stadium, saw the Palace Pelicans secure a 4-2 win over the Crystal Koalas – both teams taking their names from wards at GOSH.

Lianne Sanderson (ex-England women’s international) captained the winning team with Anton Ferdinand (ex-Premiership footballer) captaining the Koalas.

The big match was preceded by a TikTok tournament – featuring some of the platform’s biggest names such as Cal the Dragon, Shaun Nyland, Dan Spragg, Connor Kern and Paddy Murphy – as well as a kickabout between local schools and former professionals.
