Lincoln Flickers Copa Libertadores

WASPA event 3 - February 25, 2018
Mathew Atkin (River Plate) wins his first Lincoln tournament after a closely fought contest with Andrew Garbutt (Flamengo) which ended goalless after golden goal extra-time. Atkin kept his cool winning on shots 3-1.

The players
Jeremy Boothman (Peñarol) took third spot with a 3-1 win over Andy Boyer (Independiente).

The Plate competition was won by Richard Meddings who narrowly missed out on the semis losing to Andy Boyer in play-off shots also 1-3. Rich went on to win 2 and draw one of his Plate games.

Richard Meddings (Internacional) W2 D1 7pts
Connor Atkin (Chapecoense) W1 D1 4pts (beat Santos 2-0 on shots after a golden goal play-off)
Clinton J Simpson (Santos) W1 D1 4pts (new WASPA player – Lincoln Flickers)
John Devaney (São Paulo) D3 3pts
Cameron Simpson (Atlético Juniors) D2 2 pts (new WASPA player – Lincoln Flickers)

The final
Well done to everyone. It is good to see young Connor’s game developing well, threatening coming forward! Good also to see Cameron and dad, Clint, at their first WASPA event; early days and showing lots of promise – shame the new teams hadn’t arrived in time. John Devaney bravely played with Old Subbuteo including his flats having just missed out on a chance to go through to the semis on goals he had three goalless games in the Plate.

Thanks to all the members of the club who took some interest in the event and the squash players who helped with the store cupboard! Final thanks to Julia running the bar.

Next event is the Eostre Cup, 22 April.
