of 6 teams. Each team would play each other
team in their group once and therefore 5 group

would progress to the Cup or Plate competition.
teams finishing 1st and 2nd in each group would
progress to the Cup competition. This would
be played as a knock-out phase with Semi-Finals
and Final. The teams finishing 3rd and 4th in
each group would progress to the Plate competition.
This would be played as a knock-out phase with
Semi-Finals and Final. The teams finishing 5th
and 6th in each group would be eliminated.
next teams in action in Group A were Colonel
Getafe (Eng) and Murder on Zidane's Floor
(Hol). Both teams were on debut and so they
had a blank canvas upon which to paint their
footballing artistry. Let the games commence……
Getafe were the brighter of the two teams in
the first half and they got their reward for
their display. It was Teddy Hanifan who opened
the scoring it what was the only goal of the
first half. There was no addition to the scoring
after the break as the English team closed the
game out for the win. For Murder on Zidane's
Floor it was a decent performance but, alas,
no points to show for their efforts.
