'Old Subbuteo' Victory for Bickerstaff in Gorey

Congratulations to Ernie Bickerstaff on recording his first tournament victory in Gorey, County Wexford (Ireland). There were two WASPA events organised by Nicky Moore on the same day. Ernie won the first event, played to the 'Advanced Subbuteo Rules', topping the six-player table ahead of Nicky Moore. Only old Subbuteo 'Heavyweight' teams were allowed, with no polish and it produced some interesting results!

Kenny Beggs won the second WASPA event of the day, finishing above Mark Farrell in a five player group. A last-gasp goal following a corner-flick gave Kenny a 2-1 victory over Mark in the decisive match. This one was played to 'FISTF Rules'. Many thanks to Nicky, Anne & family for their kind hospitality, providing the players with accommodation and lovely food. A great summer weekend in a beautiful location.
