Enderby: the honors for Vitulano, Farrell and Blanchard

Gianpaolo Vitulano, winner on saturday
At the FISTF English Satellite Weekender in Enderby this weekend, there was plenty of WASPA action with 4 tournaments with an Open & Veterans WASPA events on each day.

On the Saturday, the Open event saw an all Kent final as Gianpaolo Vitulano beat fellow team mate and England U19 player, Chris Bowen to win the trophy whilst in the Veterans it was an all Yorkshire affair as Martin Blanchard edged Andy Boyer 3-2 on shots after a draw in normal time.

The Sunday tournaments again had some great action as Ireland’s Mark Farrell beat Kent and England Junior star, Kye Arnold, to win the Open trophy as Martin Blanchard made it a double winning the Veterans with a victory over USA’s Paul O’Donovan Rossa.

Lots of games, lots of goals and all played in great spirit!
