Brighton holds Alternative World Cup
Last month the Justin Fashanu All-Stars took part in Brighton’s very own Alternative World Cup. The football tournament was organised by local residents and members of the Cowley Club, a collectively run social centre situated on the London Road.
The women’s All-Stars team got all the way to the final, beating tournament favourites The Comets in the semi-finals after extra-time. However, the All-Stars were ultimately defeated in the final by the “World Cup Six”, courtesy of a dramatic late winner.
Overall, eight women’s and eight men’s team took part with post-match festivities taking place at the Coachwerks community arts centre in Hollingdean where the teams watched England get their World Cup campaign underway against the USA.
