A ‘DAM GOOD TOURNAMENT!

 

Churchill Champs But Everyone Was a Winner!

 

Indoor footballers from all across the RBS Group shone on the European stage recently, at the ever-popular RBS Trophy tournament in Amsterdam. Once again the event produced some hugely-enjoyable competition played in a great spirit.

 

In the end, free-scoring Churchill Stockton (left, above) notched the overall title of RBS Futsal Champions while there were some splendid showings from the likes of Edinburgh Group Technology (who scooped an historic THIRD group trophy), Intermediary Partners Norwich and RBS Netherlands.

 

Tournament Director William Walker commented: “We had a great mix of ‘veterans’ and debutants this year and I was very impressed at how well the new teams adapted to the different style of football. The guys were superb ambassadors for RBS, on and off the pitch.”

Graeme Ritchie from Group Technology added: “It was a fabulous tournament – the best yet!” while Barend van der Maas of RBS Netherlands enthused: “I sure can say we enjoyed ourselves!”

 

Well done to all concerned … and roll on 2008!

The Groups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GROUP C

A DUTCH OF CLASS!

The opening group was a home triumph for Barend van der Maas and his RBS NL Houten side who stormed to victory with a 100% record. Ulster Bank’s B team finished a very respectable second while the Dubliners’ A side and NIG London also played their part on an excellent and very sporting afternoon of futsal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

GROUP A

CHURCHILL’S V.E. DAY!

Joe Hughes’ Churchill Stockton stormed to victory with a free-scoring display in Group A which catapulted them into pole position for the overall title. However Investor Relations, captained by Ben Franz-Marwick, and Sean O’Brien’s First Active Cork can take much from their first appearance at Eurofives. Indeed the new boys’ 1-1 draw was one of the most enthralling matches of the tournament!

 

 

 

 

 

GROUP D

JONESEY JOY!

This was a high-tempo affair with little between all four teams. Chris Astley’s Bristol CLC and Andy O’Cain’s Inter-Group Farnham were both just one game away from topping the section while Ulster Bank Cork, skippered by Peter Aherne, can count themselves very unlucky not to have recorded better results. In the end though, it was Matt Jones’ IP Norwich team who deservedly topped the pile thanks to their consistent displays and resolute defending.

 

 

 

 

 

 

GROUP B

JULIËN BRAVO!

Colm O’Leary’s sprightly young Ulster Bank Dublin side played themselves into a great position and were only thwarted by a class showing from RDE Netherlands, under skipper Juliën Greve. Meanwhile the entrants from NIG weighed in with some sensational goals and a hugely-entertaining ‘NIG derby’ when Chris McAloon’s Ashington edged out Wayne Chester’s Maidstone.

 

 

 

 

 

GROUP E

MAC THE KNIFE!

‘The Group of Death’ lived up to all expectations. Chris Jackson’s IT Services London, bolstered by scoring sensation Andrew Batty, gave another fine account of themselves while Neil Galloway’s Edinburgh Rovers side manfully stuck to their task despite their injury problems. Edinburgh’s Group Tech Futsal Wanderers eventually notched an historic third trophy triumph after a dramatic see-saw battle with Glasgow Business Managers.
