Super Cup II: Notman’s Boys Thwart Bristol’s Double Bid ...

 

EDINBURGH ROCK

 

As expected, Super Cup II delivered some fine fare!

 

And there was a twist in the tale when Stephen Notman’s Team Edinburgh edged out favourites FS Bristol after a gripping final.

 

Bristol, the current HBOS futsal champions, played their usual silky soccer to come through their group stage unscathed, although they had to come from behind to defeat Chris Fogg’s lively Halifax Intermediaries from Glasgow. Bowing out at this point were Conor McBride’s spirited Halifax Retail Programmes and guest side FSL Amsterdam who acquitted themselves well with a new line-up.

 

Group B was a keenly-contested affair.  There were very respectable debut showings from Eddie Wallace’s BoS Corporate London and Laurence Clark’s Clerical Medical Bristol. However it was EFS Maastricht, with ace goalie Jethro Cornelissen in sparkling form, and Team Edinburgh who progressed to the final phase, the Scots’ victory in the opening match ultimately proving decisive for the top spot.

 

Maastricht went on to take the bronze with a 2-0 play-off win over HI Glasgow who will be proud of their first appearance at Eurofives.

 

The final was an absorbing affair. Goals from Mackenzie, Wilson and Floyd gave Edinburgh a 3-1 lead but Lee Roberts pulled one back for FS Bristol to spark a tense final few minutes. With the clock ticking down, a sensational save from Edinburgh ‘keeper Jamie White denied Andy Procter’s men an equaliser and sealed an epic victory for the young Scots.

 

Roll on February ... when the HBOS teams return to town!

RON TOP OF THE WORLD!

 

Scintillating Super Cup Victory for Johnson’s Men

 

 

The inaugural HBOS Super Cup certainly lived up to its name!

 

The first-ever series, at De Pijp Sporthal in Amsterdam’s picturesque Old South, produced a memorable afternoon of exciting, entertaining competition. And there were goals galore, some from the very top drawer.

 

In Group A CIT Chester, superbly marshalled by Ronnie Johnson, pipped local rivals Risk Chester to the top spot ahead of BOSCAF Thames Valley and the plucky newcomers from Private Banking Birmingham.

 

Meanwhile in Group B, Paul Cleary steered BoS Corporate Chester to the final after overcoming a tough challenge from Mark Riley’s sprightly North-East Midlanders, Legal Ops Leeds and the hugely-entertaining HBOS Reading.

 

The final was always going to be a cracker between the two local rivals and so it proved. In the end, a dazzling hat-trick from Darren Holmes and a superb solo effort from Pete Catling clinched victory for CIT.

 

On a day when there really were no losers, Risk Chester claimed the bronze with a play-off win over NE Midlands.
