In a break with tradition the 2011 season kicked off in Barcelona and what a great weekend it was in the Catalan capital.

On a glorious day it was a strong day for the Spanish teams with all four semi-finalists despite the presence of 2009 Barca Fives winners Luminy Wolves of France. They crashed out on penalties in the Cup Quarter-Finals having looked red hot favourites for the surprise of the tournament.

It was Equipo A who added a Cup trophy to the 2009 Barca Fives Plate. Rapid Bosco Navas narrowly missed out on a second Barcelona trophy after success in the 2008 Barca Fives.

In the Plate there was success for Bristol Bridge and Stamford AC picked up the Wooden Spoon. In terms of personal awards, Marc Cheucos claimed the top goalscorer prize with a great tally of 14 goals.

The debut Mallorca Tournament proved a hit in 2011 with teams from Ecuador, England and Spain competing for glory on the beautiful Balearic Island.

With 12 teams coming to do battle we had two groups of six with some of the most competitive group football we've had in 31 tournaments to date. There was some great football and intriguing results along the way.

In the end the overall prize was won by Policia Local de Palma who had too much in the tank for an entertaining Quayaquil 100% side with their flamboyant South American style.

In the Plate competition it was FC Dukesfield who emerged victorious via Golden Goal against Inter Urmum.

The Top Goalscorer prize was claimed by Piero Zapata of Quayaquil 100% with 10 goals in 7 games.

The tournament was played in a cracking atmosphere on a glorious day - thank you to everyone who helped make it such a triumphant debut in Mallorca for We'll see you again in 2012!


On a fantastic day of competition in Krakow it was Apsley House who emerged victorious to claim a maiden victory in competition. They came close in the 2008 Prague Masters when they came runners-up to Goldsmith Williams but on this occasion it was winners medals they collected


The runners-up were our debutants from Holland, CEPL. It was a fine debut for them as they also boasted the tournament's top two goalscorers in Matthew Morgan and Rakesh Dewoe.

In the Plate competition it was Irish Mbassy who took the trophy and Alphasights who finished 2nd.

We would like to thank all the teams who participated in the tournament and helped to make it such a cracking (Krak-ing?) day. See you all on tour soon.

The 2011 Algarve Open was one of our greatest tournaments to date and saw Athletico Do Hollande create a little bit of history when they became the first team in 33 tournaments to retain a title.

A number of teams had come close with 3 teams making the final the year after they'd won a title but all had lost. Athletico Do Hollande broke the mould to add the 2011 Algarve Open title to their 2010 triumph. They were made to work very hard though as Cheesecake FC pushed them all the way but the Dutch had just enough to win 3-2. There was double success for Athletico as their striker Toufik Haddouchi claimed the top goalscorer award with 9 goals in the tournament.

In the Plate competition there was success for Eagles UnAthletic who had also won the 2010 Krakow Trophy Plate (under the name Eagles Old Boys). In the Wooden Spoon it was a debut win for Misfits FC.

Athletico Do Hollande were bidding to become only the second team in history to win three eurofootballfives tournaments when they met Inter Women in the 2011 Amsterdam Fives final. Inter Women had other ideas and claimed their maiden title with a superb 4-1 victory.

It was disappointment for Athletico Do Hollande who hoped to add an Amsterdam trophy to two Algarve successes. Inter Women were superb though and with the tournament top goalscorer (Daniel Powell, 16 goals) plus plenty of goals from elsewhere they thoroughly deserved their victory.

In the Plate competition Rigford Seahawks won their 3rd title as they added the 2011 Amsterdam Fives Plate to the 2009 Krakow Trophy Cup and 2009 Prague Trophy Plate. They defeated Ireland's Deportivo Dooradoyle 1-0 in a tight final.

Our 9th Prague 5-a-side football tournament was a cracking event - we had 8 teams reach the Quarter-Finals who all had a reasonable claim for glory. All the knock-out games were decided by 1 goal or less with 4 of the 7 Cup knockout games being decided by Golden Goal or penalties.

When all was done and dusted it was FC Radbroke who emerged victorious showing the greatest ability and determination on the day as they defeated 3 Czech teams from the Quarter-Finals through to the Final including 2007 champions Kehar Club and 2010 Prague Trophy winners Deportivo.

In the Plate competition Wafty Crankers claimed the title with a Golden Goal winner against Ireland's Saipan FC. It was the Wafty Crankers 5th tournament with us and their debut silverware so well done to them.

The Dark Horses are making a habit of claiming the top goalscorer prize as Richard Walker claimed the golden boot at the 2010 Amsterdam Fives and team-mate Chris Bunclark was the top scorer in this tournament.

There was also personal glory for Skidmarks' Luke Hatfield as he claimed the top goalscorer award with 13 goals in 7 games.
