The South East mobility retailer has been sponsoring Brighton & Hove Walking Football club since 2015, and the cup since 2017.

Duncan Gillett, managing director at Clearwell Mobility, said: “It is a great pleasure to continue to sponsor the Clearwell Cup and Brighton & Hove Walking Football Club.

“It was fantastic to see twelve teams playing this year and I am sure the sport, and its following, will continue to grow. Staying active as you get older is a great way to keep fit and be part of a likeminded community. I’m looking forward to seeing more teams compete next year.”

This year’s winners included Worthing Seniors, Brighton Dolphins, Preston Park and Newhaven.

Chairman of the Brighton & Hove Walking Football Club, Jobe Berrington, added: “The Clearwell Cup is fast becoming the tournament of the year and it’s been fantastic to see the event grow year-on-year.

“The tournament was played in good spirit, with some excellent football on show and I encourage people to get in touch with the club if they’d like to give it a go.”
