Plate Semi-Final time and things were getting interesting. We were now just 6 games from the conclusion of the 2023 Amsterdam Sevens with 4 teams in contention for the Plate and 4 teams for the Cup. We began with the Plate Semi-Finals and up first was El Cholo versus FNF on Tour.

El Cholo were the highest ranked team in the Plate competition after the group phase in terms of the most points (9) as the other three teams all clocked up 7 points from their respective group campaigns. They would probably start as favourites but in truth there was little to separate the 4 teams on paper.

The first half kicked off with both teams displaying great determination and skill. It was FNF on Tour who made the breakthrough much to the delight of their followers. The goal came from the talented forward Trevor Elliot, who showcased his clinical finishing ability. The goal provided them with a valuable 1-0 lead heading into halftime.

The second half saw El Cholo push forward desperately seeking an equalizer. However, FNF on Tour's defensive resilience held firm, frustrating the opposition at every turn. Despite their best efforts, El Cholo failed to find a breakthrough, and the final whistle blew with FNF on Tour emerging as 1-0 victors.

The defeat was a tough pill to swallow for El Cholo, who had fought valiantly throughout the match and in the tournament. FNF on Tour, on the other hand, would continue their progress into the final, buoyed by another solid defensive display.


FNF on Tour had booked their space in the Plate Final. The two teams set to do battle for the second berth in the final were Dynamo Leila and Bullets FC. The two teams had identical records with 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats. However, if you look at the goal difference of the two teams you could make a claim for Dynamo Leila being favourites for this tie. The men in pink had a +6 goal difference compared to a -4 goal difference for the men in red.

Both teams displayed their skills and determination throughout the game, but it was Dynamo Leila who emerged as the victors with a 1-0 win, courtesy of a second-half goal by Ali Marshall.

The first half saw both teams enter the match with great energy and purpose. Dynamo Leila, known for their attacking prowess (joint third top scorers on the day with 9) looked to dominate possession and create scoring opportunities but Bullets FC's defence held firm and we reached the break level at 0-0.

As the second half continued Dynamo Leila's persistence paid off. A well-executed attacking move saw Ali Marshall send the Dynamo Leila squad into jubilant celebrations, providing them with a vital 1-0 lead. Following the goal, Bullets FC tried to mount a comeback, pushing forward with greater urgency. They created a few half-chances and forced the Dynamo Leila defense to remain vigilant. However, Dynamo Leila's backline held firm. As the final whistle blew, Dynamo Leila secured the victory and their place in a European final.

Bullets FC, despite the loss, can take pride in their performance at the 2023 Amsterdam Sevens. It was a pleasure to host them and if they return, which we sincerely hope they will, then they will undoubtedly be competitive and be able to build on this display and experience.
