Norton Old Boys were back in action on the field of play in Round 2. We mentioned briefly in Round 1 they were an experienced side in our tournaments.

They played their first eurofootballfives.com tournament back in 2010 at the Barca Fives missing out on the knock-out phase. 12 months later, in the 2011 Prague Masters, they picked up their first eurofootballfives victory and qualified for the Plate before suffering a narrow 2-1 defeat to Czech team Fridays. In a very tough 2012 Mallorca Tournament Norton Old Boys third eurofootballfives.com appearance was a hugely successful one as they took an impressive victory in the Plate competition. In the 2013 Algarve Open they won the Wooden Spoon Playoff. 2014 marked their debut at the Veterans Tournament in Mallorca a 6-1 victory over Son Veri Vets was the highlight as they finished 4th in the group. They went out of the Plate at the Semi-Final stage to eventual winners Eagles 3:36.

Their next opponents were Ashtead Vets who would finally get underway. They had 3 points in the bank from the walkover (the other teams would collect their 3 walkover points as we progressed).

Norton Old Boys had started off with a defeat but against a very tough opponent so we'd hope this hadn't dented their confidence. It was our first glimpse of Ashtead Vets on the field of play and there was very little to choose between the teams. This was evidenced in the score at half-time which was 0-0. After the break we were to get the first goals of the day for both teams. Martin Harrington was on target for Ashtead Vets, Dave Thomas was on target for Norton Old Boys. The game finished 1-1 and only time would tell if this was a point gained or two points dropped.

 
 

In the next game we had one team looking for their first victory of the day in the shape of Old Bromleians. They were up against Mini FC who were aiming to make it two wins out of two and make a good early case for Cup qualification.

In their first game Old Bromleians had competed well but found themselves a goal down at the break. History was to repeat itself in Round 2 for them. Binlo claimed his third goal in 1.5 games and the Portuguese team were on their way again. Binlo was also on his way as a contender for the top goalscorer award.

Mini FC had scored a goal in each half to defeat Norton Old Boy's last time out and they were the model of consistency as they did so again here against Old Bromleians. Paulo Aquino bagged his first goal of the tournament and sealed the match 2-0.

It was a respectable score for Old Bromleians against a team who had reached the Cup Semi-Finals in our Open Age tournament 12 months ago.

 
 
 

The third fixture of the round was the now defunct one that involved the no-show RT Algarve. This time the beneficiaries were Belfast Space Monkeys who moved on to 6 points to join Mini FC at the top.
