B began with Misfits FC taking on Redhill Rovers.
Both teams were making their European debuts so
it would be interesting to see how they each fared.
The first half proved to be a stalemate with teams
working their way into the tournament by neither
team being able to forge a successful way to goal.
0-0, it was all to play for in the second half.
Redhill Rovers' Sam Chapman broke the deadlock
in the second half. Could Misfits comeback? If
they were there task would be doubly difficult
once James Harcourt made it 2-0 to Redhill Rovers.
Things would get triply difficult when Harcourt
scored again to make it 3-0. In the end it was
a fine debut for Redhill Rovers who had a played
1, won 1 record in Europe – not a bad start at
FC should not be disheartened as they still had
3 more games to get their European challenge on
second game in Group B also saw a 3-0 scoreline
as RS Ocean Village FC claimed 3 points without
breaking sweat against Mar Olhao FC. This is because
the local Portuguese team arrived late to the
tournament. They were penalized by forfeiting
their first game. It was a shame as RS Ocean Village
would have to wait a little longer to get their
first taste of Algarve action.
