Dave Brothers wins in Chopwell

A good morning in Chopwell, despite the snow. First up was Dave 5-0 Stephen Not a lot to say. Stephen gave it a go and was caught with some soft finishes.

Next Stephen 0-1 Nigel
Nigel just had the better of the game and was able to come up with the only goal . Both players made some good blocks, showed some good touches and both players had shots.

Finally Nigel 0-0Dave
Nigel had by far the better of the game and had several chances, while Dave never had a shot! Some great blocking from Nigel throughout the game and unlucky with some of his shots. If it was a boxing match, Nigel would have won easily on points.

Standings
1st  Dave

Mike Bradbury wins the Christmas Cup


Wolverhampton SFC hosted their first official Christmas Cup and Awards Evening on Sunday 17th December.  12 of the 15 club players turned out, and the tournament was  played in a handicap format giving less experienced players an opportunity to progress.  It was a tense evening with some very close games.  League winner, Mick Hammonds suffered the fate of a surprise quarter final exit to Mark Broadhurst who managed to hold on to his 3 goal advantage, winning 3-2.

Mark's glorious run of victories was brought to an end by Justin Scott in the Semi Finals, but it took a shoot out to get past him.  The final, Justin versus Mike Bradbury was a game of two halves.  First half a tight defensive affair, with neither player giving ground.  The second half was a goal fest, with 6 goals, 4 - 2 in Mike's favour.  It was a final worthy of an excellent evening of Subbuteo!  Next open event the WSFC Roy Holden Trophy, 28th January 2018. Please visit Wolverhampton Subbuteo Football Club on Facebook for more information.

Tournament report from Donegal, Ireland

"Donegal Subbuteo" had a four player tournament on Friday evening. Cormac played for the first time in 2 years. He first played back in December 2011 as a 10 year old! Anyway there was some great games between Brian, Cormac and Caoimhe. They haven't played a lot lately so there was plenty of goals and action in every game. We played a group format with players playing each other once. Brendan used Heavyweight bases and the other 3 used the more modern bases. The idea of this was to make the tournament more equal for everyone. And as you can see from the final table, Brendan just pipped Caoimhe on goal difference! But great to see the younger ones having so much fun and determination to beat each other in this great game we all love.

Here is the final table:
Brendan Rodgers...3...7...+4
Caoimhe Rodgers...3...7...+2
Cormac Coyle...3...1...-3
Brian McCorkell...3...1...-3

Kenneth Beggs wins annivesary cup


On Monday night Derry City TFC held the 1st anniversary Cup. It’s been a great year and the club and competition has gone from strength to strength. The night saw a good turnout of ten players vie for the Cup. Kenny ‘The legend’ Beggs made an appearance and didn’t disappoint with a fantastic display of skill. Viewers tuned in for the live feed from all over the world - Wales, Italy, Greece and Strabane! The groups were closely fought affairs but Kenny proved too tough an opponent for all. Mark ‘The Moth’ McCrossan suffered defeat at the hands of Martinog Bradley in the semi, but it was Beggs, the legend himself, who sailed on to victory with a clear 4-0 victory over Bradley in the final. Brendan Rodgers took the 3rd place honours beating The Moth 1-0 in the 3rd and 4th play offs. A great night and a fitting Anniversary for the Derry City Table Football Club!
