Game 7 of Group B was an important fixture for both Gosham Rangers and WEEDS Youth. The teams currently sat in 6th and 7th position respectively and needed a win to act as a catalyst for their tournament challenge. A draw here would not really help either team too much in the overall context of the group. Both teams could point to the fact they had played FC Mahou so hopefully things would get easier from here.

Gosham Rangers were technically a team on debut in our tournaments but the squad featured some familiar faces. Mike Smith, Steve Holmes and Jake Alford who had all played for Whiteley FC on a number of occasions in our Open Age events.

It was WEEDS Youth who struck first in this one with Gareth Bowen the man to score his team's first of the tournament. Gosham Rangers equalized though through Jake Alford. A Steve Holmes goal then put Gosham Rangers 2-1 up.

The fourth goal in this game proved to be the killer for WEEDS Youth. Mark Sanders struck again for Gosham Rangers as they sealed a 3-1 victory which would see them climb to fourth by the end of Round 3.

 
 
 

Mavericks made their debut at the 2012 Valencia Fives. They were impressive in the group phase but a series of draws (3 out of 4 games) hindered their progress but they qualified for the Plate competition. They sailed through the Quarter-Finals 4-0 before a penalty shoot-out exit at the hands of Club Tropicana Drinks FC. Fast forward 12 months and they competed at the 2013 Barcelona Fives. This time they had 3 wins out of 4 games as they won Group C to qualify for the elite Cup competition. They then met the eventual winners, Los Swallacticos of Northern Ireland, in the Quarter-Finals and went out 3-1.

Lisbon 2016 was their first appearance in our Veterans Tournament. They were unbeaten in the group phase as they produced 2 wins and 3 draws from their 5 games. They missed out on the Cup by just 1 point as they finished in third place. In the Plate Semi-Finals they were defeated 1-0 by Crabtree Amblers.

Another win and a draw this morning meant Mavericks were unbeaten in the group phase of our Veterans tournaments (7 games). Sadly for them, all good things have to come to an end, and it was at the hands (feet?) of Trilution their unbeaten run was curtailed.

A solitary goal from Aquino was enough to hand the Portuguese team a 1-0 victory.

 
 
 

To complete Round 3 of Group B we had FC Mahou versus Dickie Dogs.

FC Mahou had been simply irresistible since making the step up to our Veterans events. Their record so far was played 9, won 9 with a goal difference of 38-2 over that period. So, Dickie Dogs how do you fancy your chances?

They were certainly facing an incredibly tough challenge. Having just secured a 0-0 draw with Mavericks this was hardly the fixture they needed to try and build some momentum.

The game began according to the form book with Mike Brandon and Steve Sachro putting FC Mahou 2-0 up. Michael Georgiou, on his Dickie Dogs debut, then pulled a goal back to make it 2-1. Could a sensational comeback be on the cards?

If it was then Steve Sachro ruthlessly killed it off. He made it 3-1 and then 4-1 to seal the win for FC Mahou. Sachro scored 5 goals at the 2017 Mallorca Veterans and his hat-trick here meant he was just 1 goal off that tally already this morning.

FC Mahou were now the perfect #10 in our Veterans tournament. 10 wins from 10 games in what was their 10th eurofootballfives.com tour.
