The summer cup for Geoffrey Marain


Last night 7 players attended the last tournament of the season in Templeuve. Geoffrey Marain had no problem to win another final against Vincent Coppenolle while Renald Deloose, who was back after a break of a few months, and Matthias Averlant, made it to the semis. The next tournament in Templeuve will be on September 1 at 6.30 with the visit of the US national team.

Christian Filippella is the new US champion


In the first week-end of August, Maryland was the center of American Subbuteo as the National was organized by Paul Eyes and Maryland Subbuteo club in a nice venue in Ellicott City. 23 players from all over the US were taking part. Christian Filippella, who is based in California, won the final against Daniel Cranston. Paul O'Donovan Rossa and Michael Tillman reached the semis. Gregg Deinhart from Virginia won the consolation tournament but also the veterans title after a close final against Dario Passadore (Florida). Grant Lilly was the U19 champion. The event also gave some WASPA points for the competitors. 8 players from the USA will be present in Belgium to play the FISTF World Cup on September 3 and 4. They will have training sessions in Eugies on August 31 (friendly team event) and in Templeuve on September 1 (WASPA tournament). We wish them good luck for their trip in Europe.

Giuseppe Tardiota wins again in Brisbane


Six players contested the last of our winter tournaments here in the beuatiful weather of South East Queensland.The first round saw our WASPA high flyers Rik and Giuseppe make convincing wins 4-1 and 3-1 respectively. Andy R the other winner, with another comfortable win 3-0.Rik and Giuseppe went on to repeat those same scorelines in the next round, talk about consistency ! And funny enough, the other score was a 3-0 to Gus.
Something had to change, and it did in the 3rd round. Shane got his first win and the big boys played each other, Rik coming out on top beating Giuseppe 3-1.
Round four produced our first draws of the day. Shane doing really well to grab a point from Giuseppe with a 2-2 and Gus twice coming back from Riks' goals, to take a lead and then see Rik equalise. In the other game, Andy R found his shooting boots to put 6 past Gareth who managed 1 in reply.
In the last round Giuseppe and Gus sealed 2nd and 3rd spots with the exact same points and goal difference. Despite Andy R beating Rik 2-1, Rik finished top on goal difference, Andy R securing 4th spot.
So into the semi finals, and with less than 2 minutes remaining both games were 0-0. That was until Gus gave Giuseppe a penalty with a blocking flick striking a moving ball in the area. Gus guessed the right way but Giuseppe's penalty was struck too well. And so, after 30 mins, Giuseppe was through but the game between Rik and Andy R was to head into extra time. A tense 10 minutes flew past and we still had a goaless stalemate. So shots it was, and remarkably both players scored their first three shots each. Then Andy missed, after Rik had scored his fourth. Rik  missed his last shot but Andy couldn't score to level it. So our top rankers were facing each other in the final.
In the 3rd 4th play off, Andy R started the better piling on the pressure. Finally Gus managed to string a few passes together and it resulted with a goal, very much against the run of play. It was a close game, both players fairly relaxed as it was only for 3rd, however the will to win was not missing. Gus stepped his game up and score a couple of goals on the move to take a 3-0 lead. Andy R though wasn't done, and charged through with a very impressive goal late on so the game finished 3-1.
The final was the usual tense tight affair, with neither player giving much away. Giuseppe was probably edging the game and this was to pay off when he got on the score sheet first. Rik grew into the game but Giuseppe doubled his lead. Soon after Rik finally got a goal back. However, the stubborn Italian defense was not to be breached again, and so it ended up 2-1 to Giuseppe. Currently ranked 13 in the WASPA rankings, this could see him break top 10.
It was a great competition, Gareth is starting to get his tactics together, Shane is finding the net, and  getting points, Andy and Gus chased the favourites down to the wire. We played on Giuseppe's two new Exrtreme Works pitches, on great true boards from Rik, and they were truly awesome. Good to see Derek Hovell come for a look, a flicker from yesteryear who will be joining the fold soon. A big thanks to Giuseppe for being the great host as always, and we look forward to next months tournament on the 24th of September.

Geoffrey Marain wins in Quévy

The club of Quévy (Belgium) had a WASPA tournament last friday with a good turnout of 8 players including several French guys. Geoffrey marain ended on top of the group of 8 and took a deserved title. Jean-Marc Matha was runner-up whil Alain Flament was 3rd. Stéphane Lambert, Hervé Lessigne, Michel Einsle, Bruno Ledoux and Philippe Ledoux were the other players taking part.

Eliot Kennedy takes the honors in Chastwood

WASPA Tournament: Northern Falcons, Good Games Chatswood, 17 August 2016
As the Sydney Subbuteo scene slowly awakes from its winter hibernation, four players made their way to Good Games Chatswood for an evening of friendly flicking.  The regular Northern Falcons evening was just what the doctor ordered as players seek to get back into some flicking rhythm with the Sydney Spring League beckoning.
Adrian Elmer and Mat Barrie from Subbuteo Parramatta joined Hermann Kruse and Eliot Kennedy for a round robin competition of short (20 minute) games.  Eliot and Mat kicked off, with Eliot easing to a 1 – 0 win, unable to turn possession into goals thanks to some good defending and great keeping by Mat, who had several opportunities to grab an equaliser on the break.  On the other table, Adrian struck some good form to dispatch Hermann 3 – 0 in the most decisive score of the evening.  Adrian and Eliot (pictured below) then played a tight match, with Eliot again tending to dominate possession but only able to convert once.  Adrian played confidently and had his chances too and could easily have evened things up.  Meanwhile, Mat and Hermann battled to a 1 – 1 draw.  In the final round, Hermann very nearly kept Eliot out with some great keeping, withstanding something of a bombardment to go down 1 – 0, and Arian and Mat played a typically tight match, with Adrian grabbing the honours 1 – 0.
In the end, Eliot just came out on top with three narrow wins, with Adrian second on six points and Mat and Hermann both on one point but Mat pipping Hermann on goal difference.  But the main result of the night was the chance to get some much needed match practice before the Spring League and the Australia Open next month in Melbourne.

The Altona Cup 206 for Carl Young

Western Flickers Melbourne 5th WASPA – the Altona Cup! (20 Aug 2016)
Reported by Benny Ng (Melbourne, Australia)

Western Flickers Melbourne was formed to cater for players living on the north/west side of Melbourne and provide more opportunities to play the wonderful game of Subbuteo table football.
If you are reading this and new to Subbuteo table football, watch this video (https://youtu.be/2GwgHF8IrXQ) for a brief introduction to the game.

Western Flickers hosted the 3rd edition of the annual Altona Cup (which is also WTF’s 5th WASPA event). This is one of the biggest events on the Melbourne table football calendar and has sentimental significance to many local players. As a community and social focused event, many of the current players have either been first exposed to Subbuteo or re-engaged with the game via this event.
For the Altona Cup 2016, we had a great turnout of 10 adults and 6 kids taking part in the Open and Junior categories respectively – making it the biggest table football tournament in Melbourne this year by far!

Junior category
Junior “veterans” Benjamin Ng and Aidan Deverall were the pre-tournament favourites with the Briffa Boys – Harrison and Alex – being dark horses after impressive showings in the social Friday Flick sessions. They were joined by Charlie in only his second Subbuteo outing and newcomer Charlotte in her very first tournament.
The category was run as a simple round-robin ladder giving everyone lots of game time and an opportunity to play each other.
It turned out to be Benjamin’s day. He was in top form and comfortably took out the Junior championship undefeated. In a minor upset, Harrison just pipped Aidan for the runners-up spot with a big thanks to his brother Alex who managed to hold Aidan to a draw.
Charlotte impressed everyone with some very good flicking on her debut, and Charlie also showed great improvement since his last outing in March.
Most importantly, all the kids had great fun and loving the game. It’s great to see the Junior scene at Western Flickers developing well.

Open category
The 10 players in the Open category were split into 3 groups. The top 3 WASPA ranked players – Carl, Luke and Benny – were spread across the groups and the rest randomly allocated.
Group A – Carl Young, Simon Briffa, Chris Hirst
Group B – Luke Radzminski, Choon Lee, Adam Deverall, Kevin Grant
Group C – Benny Ng, Christos Garagounis, Fauzi Rahmen

Group stages
In Group A, Carl easily won both his matches leaving Simon and Chris to battle it out for second spot. Simon came out on top with a thrilling 2-1 victory over Chris to snare the coveted second spot.
In Group B, Luke romped to the top and the experienced Adam finished second. Kevin got his first WASPA win with a narrow 1-0 win over Choon.
In Group C, Christos opened with an admirable draw against Benny. But Benny just managed to pip Christos to the group top spot on goal difference by a single goal!

Final Stages

Cup Pool
Kevin and Luke
As expected, the seeded players were true to their WASPA ranking and qualified for the Cup Pool. The dominant Carl comfortably beat Luke and Benny by the same 2-0 margin to clinch the championship – his 3rd Altona Cup win in a row! This also meant that Luke and Benny were on even standing going into their final game. It proved to be a thrilling game with Luke coming back from behind twice to force a draw. Luke won the subsequent shots and to finish as tournament runners up.

Plates Pool
The 2nd placed player from each group were placed in the Plates pool to determine the tournament fourth to sixth placing. Adam’s defeat of Christos proved to be enough to win the pool. Well done to Simon for finishing a very credible 6th overall in his tournament debut!

Bowl Pool
There was a four way battle for the consolation places with very close games. A number of Friday Flick practices under Kevin’s belt proved to be the difference. Kevin won the the pool undefeated followed by Chris, who was rediscovering Subbuteo after decades away.
Congrats to Choon for scoring his first Subbuteo goal and also winning his first WASPA game. The win was enough to avoid the wooden spoon. Credit also to Fauzi for a good showing despite not playing Subbuteo since Nov last year.

Carl Young receives his trophy from Benny Ng

Conclusion
Carl vs Luke
Thanks to all who attended for helping to make it an extremely successful WASPA event. There was even time for a friendly team match to give everyone a taste of a team contest. It was a big hit and everyone loved it!
Finally and most importantly, everyone has loads of fun and went home happy. Subbuteo was indeed the winner.
GO WEST!

1. Carl Young
2. Luke Radzminski
3. Benny Ng

Chessray Jooste wins the 2016 PFC Super Cup

 
Saturday 13 August 2016, Pretoria, South Africa
With the eagerly anticipated start of the various Football Leagues around Europe (and South Africa), the 2016 edition of the PFC Super Cup was played under the theme "Cup of Champions" whereby participants played in the colours of last season's League winners & runners up from various European Football Leagues (and South Africa).
The event drew a field of 14 entries - the highest number of participants for a Pretoria event to date !!! This is very encouraging, as it shows that Pretoria is moving in the right direction.
The field included a return for Neilon Waterson and Webster Morris, who both last competed in the Pretoria Open in April 2016. Also included in the field were Conway Julie (returining after last competing in 2013) and yet another debutant in Laurence Drywer!
In Round 1 action, Chessray Jooste (Sundowns FC - last season's SA champs) got his day off to the perfect start by beating pre-tournament favourite Jayden vd Merwe (Bayern Munich) by 1-0. Jayden was facing a battle thereafter especially when in Round 2 he was due to face another favourite in Bevin Reed (PSG) - however, in Round 2 Jayden & Bevin played to an exciting 0-0 draw.
Round 1 action saw Adam Murray (Juventus) dispatch of Rowin Wilson (Dortmund) by 2-0. The highlight of Round 1 ended Julian vd Merwe (WITS - another SA team) 1 v 1 Kegan vd Merwe (Real Madrid) - a match where Kegan took the lead after 6min of play with a well placed shot beating Julian's keeper on the near post ; from a swift counter attack move on the right flank, with long placed passes Julian got into the zone to beat Kegan from an accute angle to equalise on 11min of play  - regarded by many present as the goal of the day!
Adam was playing well, and by the end of his 4th match he was on 5 points - to join the likes of Jayden, Chessray, Kegan and Julian all on 5 points!
The event deciders came as late as Match 27 & Match 28 - first Kegan (Real Madrid) had to beat Conway Julie (Barcelona) to ensure he remains top of the standings, but Match 27 ended 0-0 . Perhaps the hype about "El Classico" had something to do with it?
In Match 28, the two South African teams (Sundowns - Chessray Jooste) and (WITS University - Julian vd Merwe) had it all to play for especially after Real Madrid failed to take maximum points from "El Classico" previously. The winner of Match 28 would be crowned 2016 PFC Super Cup champion!
The atmosphere was quick as the match got off to a slow pace with both players adopting a cautious approach and nothing like the fast pace they both played at in previous rounds. Chessray opened the scoring on 7min from an attack on his left flank, with his only real chance of the game. Thereafter Julian went on the offensive and Chessray's keeping skills were tested on 2 occassions - but Chessray held firm to end the day as 2016 PFC Super Cup champion and claim his 5th WASPA title to date!
The fact that both South African teams were in "the final" just proves that "Local is Lekker" - translated from Afrikaans : "Local is good too"!
Adam Murray had a good tournament - ending the day as joint top scorer with Jayden vd Merwe. For that effort, Adam was awarded the new PFC club shirt as well. Julian vd Merwe played well all day, and for being in the running all day (until that fateful last match) he too was presented with the new PFC club shirt. An explanation is needed for Bevin Reed's low ranking in the event - midway through the event, Bevin had to depart to attend to a family medical emergency and hence had to suffer the forfeiture of his last two remaining games. We at PFC wish Bevin all the best!
Finally, a big welcome to our latest debutant Laurence Drywer - who actually surpassed all expectations by earning  3points on debut!
Thanks to all for attending and making the day a masive success - and one that will surely live long in the memory!

WASPA monthly report of July 2016

Hi everyone, here are the monthly standings of the WASPA circuit. It has been a very busy month with point of three more events played in June to add, 30 regional events held in July and 2 tournaments with the old rules being played in Italy.

Golden book as per July 2016
Excel file with the rankings

We were glad to see five WASPA events being played in Enderby during the FISTF Major of England in the beginning of the month. We had many international visitors taking part so it was great. Some nations have been very active in July as we had 6 events in Australia, 6 in Belgium, 4 in Cyprus and 8 in England.

Action in Limassol, Cyprus
Greece had amazing events with 35 and 21 players taking part. SC Charleroi held their very first WASPA tournament.

Once again, thanks everyone to making things happen. Thanks to all organizers and to all players. Your input is more than welcome. If you have suggestions to improve the WASPA circuit for next season, it will be more appreciated. Our only ambitions is to have Subbuteo fans flicking and promoting the game. Thanks to everyone in the FISTF and WASPA circuits who help this game to grow!

Players in Cape Town, South Africa
Special thanks to the four nations who have already organized more than 40 tournaments this season (England, Belgium, Italy, Australia). I'm sure these nations are working in the right direction and will be a source of inspiration for the rest of the world even if many clubs around the world are also doing a great job (22 nations have already organized WASPA tournaments this season).

August will be another great month. The National in the US was played this week-end in Maryland and we also had the first event in Romania. It will be great to include Romania in the records next month. We have hopes to include some more nations in the future. The door remains open for everyone.

Old rules tournament in Tolentino, Italy
I would appreciate if many players could send me some feedback about what they expect from WASPA for the new season. What improvements would you like to see? Thanks in advance!

Keep an eye on the WASPA blog at http://waspa-circuit.blogspot.com as there are updates almost every day.

The FISTF website can be found here: http://www.fistf.com

Players in Brisbane, Australia
Please remember you only need 3 players to register your tournament. Don't be scared to join. It's free and tournament requests can be sent by e-mail to vincent.cop@rsca.com

Have a nice day and keep on flicking!

Mcnulty takes out 3rd title in a row in Perth clean sweep

The players
The latest Subbuteo Perth Open was held on July 24.

Standings
1. Ross McNulty 8 0 0 32 1 24
2. Chris Thorn 4 1 3 8 4 13
3. Julien Scheinok 3 1 4 6 18 10
4. Hugh Best 1 3 4 2 13 6
5. Thomas Scheinok 1 1 6 1 13 4

Ross Mcnulty reported: "Special thanks to the Scheinok brothers in Julien and Thomas who really helped make it such a special day as we hosted our first tournament for oversees players. Both brothers acquitted themselves very well and the main thing was they both notched wins and fiercely competed against us. Notable results were Hugh Best's opening win against Chris Thorn in a 1-0 win, also Julien had bragging rights over his brother Thomas in a 3-0 win and a 1-0 win although Thomas did himself proud as he finally claimed a win with a 1-0 defeat of Hugh Best in his penultimate game. Chris Thorn did his best to try and keep pace with a rampant Ross McNulty but ultimately he ran away with the title winning every game and conceding just 1 goal in the 8-1 thrashing of a tired Julien in his last game."

Nikolaos Liakopoulos wins the Copa America







The Flaming Flickers in Greece held another tournament under the theme of the "football fever" in July and this time the 21 competitors were playing a "Copa America". The 16 Open players were divided in four groups while the 5 juniors competed in a round robin. Nikolaos Liakopoulos defeated Nikos Psomiadison shots to claim the Open title while Panos Panagiotides won the game for the third place against Panos Patistas.
