on Saturday 30th April, Barcelona the first
final of the eurofootballfives.com 2011 season
and it was the Barcelona Fives Plate Final between
Intermore FC representing Ireland and Bristol
Bridge representing England.
in this report we've mentioned how well organized
Intermore FC are and how close Bristol Bridge's
games have been so we were expecting a tight and
evenly contested match. Curse of the commentator
would mean this would be a one-sided goalfest.
There was to be no curse and we got the well match,
close encounter we expected.
half-time there was stalemate at 0-0 and you would
be a brave man to predict a winner. The game needed
someone to step up to the plate to win the Plate.
Who would write the headlines and bring home the
trophy as a goal looked less and less likely and
extra time/penalties looked more and more likely.
Inevitably, if there was going to be a goal it
was highly likely it would be the winner.
did get a goal and that went to Bristol Bridge.
The man who took the plaudits with the Plate-winning
strike was Peter Phillips.
teams had played their part in an intriguing and
enthralling final. Our congratulations go to Intermore
FC for a fine tournament as they collected their
runners-up medals. Bigger congratulations go to
Bristol Bridge who claim the winning trophy, winners
medals and the crown of
.. 2011 Barcelona Fives Plate Champions.
