The Warriors made their debut in the summer of 2015 at the Algarve Veterans Tournament. They started off well in Group B with two 1-0 wins in their first 3 games and ultimately finished 4th in the table. They then defeated Ashtead Vets 1-0 in the Plate Semi-Finals before just missing out on the winner's trophy as Norton Old Boys emerged victorious 1-0.

At the 2016 Lisbon Veterans Tournament they recovered from a 2-0 opening defeat to record 3 wins and a draw to finish joint top of Group B (but second on goal difference). They qualified for the Cup competition but went out in the Semi-Finals to the eventual champions Sago.

2 years ago in Mallorca they enjoyed success. In the group phase they recorded 2 wins from their 5 games as they finished in fourth place to qualify for the Plate. They recorded a 2-1 win over WEEDS Youth in the Semi-Finals and a 2-0 win over Dickie Dogs in the Plate Final to lift the trophy.

At the 2018 Algarve Veterans Tournament they secured 2 victories, 1 draw and 3 defeats as they finished fourth in the Group B table. It meant they qualified for the Plate competition but exited at the Quarter-Finals stage following a 2-0 defeat to Mavericks.

They started today with two defeats but their form was about to change. They were up against Sandgate Salmons who were also looking for their first win.

A goal-less first half meant the teams were heading for a draw which would help neither team in the context of the Group A table. We were to get a winner though and Paul Janman was the hero of the hour as his goal afforded The Warriors a 1-0 victory.

 
 
 

Next up on Pitch B was a game between Los Amblos and FC Mahou. Playing as Crabtree Amblers, the 2017 Mallorca Veterans Tournament was Los Amblos's strongest group performance with 3 wins, 1 draw and just the 1 defeat as they secured 10 points and second place in Group B. The only downside of this was that they drew a rampant FC Mahou in the Cup Semi-Finals. FC Mahou were on fire that day and defeated Crabtree Amblers 6-0.

The two teams missed each other last year as they were drawn in separate groups and then qualified for different knock-out competitions. This was the first meeting since that Cup Semi-Final.

So far today FC Mahou had 2 wins out of 2. Los Amblos had lost 1, won 1 but came into this game with the momentum of that win behind them.

FC Mahou were just as ruthless as they were in 2017 as they raced to a 3-0 half-time lead. Pete Cox, Mike Brandon and Pete Armstrong were all on the score-sheet. The second half look a formality in terms of the destination on the points. Pete Cox scored his second of the game to put the icing on a 4-0 cake.

 
 
 

CT1 versus Dream Team was the final game in Round 3. Dream Team needed the victory to keep tabs on FC Mahou at the top of the table. If they could, it looked like a two horse race for the two Cup qualification places.

If CT1 could claim victory it would mean they would go level with their opposition on 6 points and give hope to the chasing pack on 3 points just 3 points behind with two games to go.

Dream Team forged ahead in the first half with Jose Martinez Martinez scoring for the third successive game. They needed another couple of goals to go above FC Mahou on goal difference but were unable to add to their lead. Defensively they were sound though as a third clean sheet of the tournament prevented CT1 scoring an equalizer.
