The CIC Cup was held again this year on Wednesday July 13th in Tyn-y-Nant Christian Centre near Abererch. This was the 8th time that this tournament was held. 6 teams came to compete, enjoy and have the opportunity to hear the gospel outside of a chapel or church.
The format of the tournament was as follows. Everyone played each other in a round-robin, with the top four teams reaching the semi-finals. Bale boys (Bala) beat CIC Chwilog 2-0 in the first semi-final, with CIC Llanrug emerging victorious 1-0 against CIC Bala in the second semi.
In the Final CIC Llanrug won 1-0 in extra time against the Bale Boys. Congratulations to them and to every team who competed – every game was played in a spirit of fairplay.
Following the final it was time for the barbeque and then a talk from Guto Evans, Coleg Y Bala. Guto spoke about how the Wales Football Team represented us at Euro 2016, and how Jesus also represented us on the cross in winning victory against sin and death. We can be part of that victory if we trust in him to forgive us of those wring things we have done.
Many thanks to the staff of Tyn-y-Nant for their generousity once again this year, and to everyone who ensured another successful evening. We pray that the Lord will use events like this in order to draw young people and adults to himself.
