Scotland's Malcolm Lees is UK and Ireland champion

This week-end, the club of Yorkshire Phoenix organized the 2015 First Call Gas WASPA UK and Ireland Championship.
Yorkshire Phoenix, team champion
A great weekend saw Yorkshire Phoenix win the team event on Saturday beating Manchester TFC in the final 2-0. The individual tournament was played under WASPA banner and attracted 22 players. The event was played with Swiss system and it was very exciting as after 5 games, the top 3 players ended with 12 points. Scotland had a 1,2,3 with Malcolm Lees coming out on top via goal difference. Great weekends play enjoyed by all, and we will be sure to run the event again next season.
