Contestants paid a £1 entry fee to compete in the tournament, with all proceeds being donated to Rochdale Connections Trust.

A spokesperson for Rochdale Exchange said: “The two-day event proved a huge success with over 120 people taking part and we raised more than £170 for Rochdale Connections Trust.”

Bev Place, Business Development Manager at Rochdale Connections Trust said: “The winner of the competition was Edi Njie who won the top prize of a PS4 console.

“Congratulations to runners up Ralph Ambrose, Dayton Lawson, Daniel Hayes and Bradley Evans who have all won signed copies of FIFA19.”

Kathy Thomas, CEO of Rochdale Connections Trust said: “I went along to see what the tournament consisted of and it was great to see so many young people participating.

“They were so skilled on the games consoles and we were thrilled to be selected as the recipient charity for the event.

“The monies raised have been allocated to the ground floor renovations we are having at our premises on Drake Street to make the environment much more user-friendly for local people who access our services.”
