WFW26 – Club Championships

Western Flickers WASPA 26 – Club Championships
21st July, 2018


Western Flickers’ finest table footballers gathered for our 2nd annual club championship in both Open and Junior categories. Both categories were played in a simple round robin ladder format. Who would emerge victorious and earn the right to have their names engraved on the club championship trophies for all eternity?

In the Open category, Benny was the clear winner finishing top undefeated but Adam Deverell was the surprise package of the day. Coming back from a lengthy break from table football, it was like he was never away and turned in a strong performance to pip Steve Wright for 2nd spot … by a single goal difference!

In the Junior category, the matches were a lot tighter with close exciting games throughout. It’s great to see the kids so close in level which makes for challenging and thrilling contests! In the end, Benjamin emerged as the winner closely followed by the Briffa boys – Alex and Harrison. So continuing from their strong performances at the Japan Grand Prix earlier in the month, father and son duo Benny and Benjamin successfully defended their 2017 titles achieving back-to-back wins. Congrats ! But best of all, the matches were played with fantastic sportsmanship throughout and – true to our Western Flickers values – with lots of FUN & laughter as well ! To close off the day, we went down to the local Altona restaurant Creme Altona for some well-deserved and yummy dinner! Well done to all .. next up .. the oldest ongoing table football tournament in Melbourne … the prestigious Altona Cup ! GO PELICANS !
