St Georges Tournament 60+

Our Over 60's, along with the 50's, took part in a tournament at the excellent FA St George's Park.

I'd like to say we played some lovely free scoring football in our group games . However, our results highlight how defensively sound we were.

Group results.

Stamford 1 v Roston 0. W.Barrett.

Stamford 0 v Bolton W 0.

Stamford 0 v Mancom 0.

Stamford 0 v Wimbledon 0.

We finished the group in 2nd place on goal difference 😯.

A very tight semi final game v Harsthill finished 0 - 0. We went through to the final winning 2 - 0 on pens.

In the final we played against Bramcote. This was another tight game with few chances for either side. This finished 0 - 0, onto penalties again. Unfortunately, we eventually lost out on sudden death.

Another tournament final for 60's, last one was M.Harborough a few weeks ago. The result didn't go our way again, but it was a superb squad achievement to get to another final.

Many thank to my fellow squad members who proudly represented Stamford Strollers.

Steve Brine.

John Phythian.

Martin Donnelly.

Jez Norris.

Tim Marsden.

Nigel Miller.

Brian Dunkerly.

Frank Smith.

Lastly, a well done to our Over 50's who also got to the final in their competition. However, they lost the game 1 - 0.

Overall it shows how well the club is doing in that, just like at M.Harborough, both teams reached the final again.
