Area 5-a-side Results

Greetings all,

Yesterday (Sunday 9th Jan 2011) the Area 14 5 a Side Tournament was held at Loughborough University.  Over a period of 2 hours on 2 football courts 8 teams vied for the opportunity to hold aloft the prestigious Area 14 5 a side trophy.

It was a morning filled with excellent camaraderie, lots of running, sweat, silky ball skills and for me persoanlly picking the ball out of the back of the net (not after scoring of course but haplessly keeping goal!)

It was also, suprisingly some would say, a very clean set of matches and there were hardly any injuries at all! So well done to all participants.

Without further ado the results:

1st Derby Merlin

2nd Long Eaton

3rd Ashby

4th Beeston

5th = Hucknall & Loughborough

7th= Leicester & Swadlincote

So Congratulations to Derby Merlin on their excellent display of footballing skills and I have to say commiserations to Long Eaton who did fantastically well in a very close final only to loose out 4-3 at the end of the game.

The next Area event will be in February and will be Indoor Bowls in Swadlincote – details to follow.

Also National sports are looming in the diary with Quiz, 10 pin bowling, golf and Snooker all needing to be played by the end of January.  If you would like to take part in any of these events please email meif you have not already done so.
