Mike Burns takes small Hot Club D'Ecosse WASPA Event

A concoction of broken legs, hospitalizations, car problems and house buying led to a very disappointing small turn out of only 4 players at the latest HCE WASPA event.  8 players were expected then a raft of very late call offs for the reasons above and more, halved the turn out, not even our inflatable penguin fancied a game on Friday!!

4 players meant a round robin event that meant everyone played everyone.  Previous HCE WASPA Winner Malc Lees got off to a disastrous start losing 5-0 to Mike Burns.  Craig Lynch overcame the returning and ever improving Vince Fitzpatrick with virtually the last flick of the game to win 1-0.

The second round of fixtures had Malc return to scoring form winning 5-2 against Craig while Mike beat Vince 4-0.  The last round of the round robin saw Mike finish top without conceding. Some clinical finishing with goals either side of half time gave Mike a 4-0 win against Craig whilst Malc made sure of second place by defeating Vince 4-0.

Due to the poor turnout our venue refused to make us any food meaning there were no tidy pies on offer this week which was very disappointing!
