‘Patton’s poles’ win mini-world cup tournament

A big turnout of senior and u17 squad members along with the coaching staff played the tournament amongst themselves. The teams were as follows:

1. Joel’s Jamaicans
2. Edgar’s Egyptians
3. Patton’s Poles
4. Crilly’s Colombians
5. McMahon’s Moroccans
6. Stefan’s Spaniards

Winning Captain Mark Patton was presented with a bag of mini Twirls with u17 Player of the tournament Stephen King receiving a bag of mini Crunchies.
