Players were split into two groups with the top two players progressing to the knockout stage. Matches were played in 10 minute halves and the tournament utilised the full extent of equipment at the MTFC clubhouse (4 Tables).
In Group A, Luke Radziminski progressed unscathed as he defeated David Simpson (2-0), Benjamin Ng (3-1) and Nigel Edwards (2-0). Luke was Joined in the semi-finals by David Simpson who secured his place with a 2-0 victory over nigel Edwards. Benjamin Ng finished the group in 3rd with a memorable 1-1 draw against David Simpson and a goalless stalemate with Nigel Edwards who recorded his first competitive point in this match.
|Aidan and Adam Deverell|
In the 7th Place Playoff Nigel Edwards notched his first competition goal and win with a 1-0 victory over Aidan Deverell who again showed great persistence and determination against much older opponents.
Benjamin Ng displayed the ‘park the bus’ tactic in his 5th Place Playoff game against Adam Deverell, but it success came to a halt with only minutes remaining as Adam took out a 1-0 Victory.
The Semi-Finals were both close affairs. Benny Ng scored early in the first half whilst Benji Batten scored with only 1 minute on the clock to notch up 1-0 wins in their respective semi-finals (Benji against Luke and Benny against David).
All in all, a fantastic afternoon with a great group of players. 17 Games producing 30 goals and a number of memorable moments, looking forward to the next one.
