The miners of the Amur region held a sports tournament with the pupils of the sponsored orphanage

On July 9, the miners of JSC “Amurugol” invited the pupils of the orphanage “Chance” of the Amur region to the sports ground of the enterprise for a friendly mini-football meeting with the presentation of a rolling cup, diplomas and sweet prizes. The sports competitions of miners and children of the orphanage are held for the second time this year: earlier, coal miners invited children from the orphanage “Chance” to a volleyball tournament.

Experienced and young athletes competed at the mini-football tournament: veterans of JSC “Amurugol” with 11 pupils of “Chance” aged 13 to 15 years. The meeting was held in the format of 2 halves of 30 minutes with an unlimited number of substitutions.

For the first 20 minutes, the veterans of the coal industry confidently led the game. However, after the break, the initiative was intercepted by the children of the orphanage, who eventually beat the coal miners with a score of 9-12.

“The whole second half was held under warm torrential rain, but it was even more fun and interesting. During the game, our veterans taught the guys the tactics of the game, the correct placement on the field, the organization of defense, interception of the ball and the transition to attack. After the game, an award ceremony was held in the assembly hall of “Amurugl” with the presentation of the cup, diplomas and sweet prizes. Every evening, young people gather at the Amur Coal sports ground, the guys communicate and play volleyball. We train them periodically and conduct master classes. Promotion of a healthy lifestyle and support of regional sports programs is an important part of the company’s social policy,” said Evgeny Matlauskas, Deputy General Director for Personnel and Social Affairs of Amurugol JSC.

In the future, coal miners of the Amur region plan to develop sports competitions, inviting high school students and students of the industrial college of Raichikhinsk, as well as all sports enthusiasts from other institutions of the city to participate in them.
