First event for Pretoria Flickers Club

Saturday 25th May 2013 marked the first ever WASPA event in Pretoria, South Africa when PFC hosted their first Club Cup competition, namely the PFC FOUNDERS CUP.
The event attracted a field of 7 entries :
Each participant played 4 matches on the day - the format based on a Swiss System draw.
A cautious first round of matches saw three 0-0 drawn matches, and we had to wait for the latter rounds to see some goal action !
Jayden vd Merwe stormed to the top of the leaderboard with first a 2-0 win over Marc-Leigh Alexander in Round 3 action & then a hard fought 1-0 win over Julian vd Merwe in the penultimate
match of the tournament ! As fate would have it, the very last match-up Kegan vd Merwe (0) vs (1) Chessray Jooste turned out to be a real "decider" - in which Kegan needed a clear 2-0 win to
be crowned Champion & Chessray needed a 2-0 win to force a title deciding play-off against Jayden !! However, Chessray could only manage a single goal scored on 13min to claim 2nd place &
thereby handing the title to Jayden !! Elsewhere, a very impressive 3rd place for PFC (and Subbuteo) newcomer Adrian Otto !!
A very big thank you to all the PFC members who participated in our 1st ever WASPA event - a great success & a memorable day indeed !!
