Stamford AC (Eng)




Shallow Hals (Eng)


The 2011 Barcelona Fives Wooden Spoon Final would see an all English final as Stamford AC met Shallow Hals. Based upon group performances and the bigger Semi-Final win, Stamford AC were most people's favourites for glory and lift the wooden prize aloft.


Shallow Hals had been underdogs in the previous match and thrived against Idealhouseshare Allstars in the semi-final. Could they do it again? Early signs were that they could repeat the feat and make it two wins out of two. Chris Williams found the perfect time to score his first of the tournament as he opened the scoring for the men in pink and they led 1-0 at the break.


What did Stamford AC have left in the tank? Idealhouseshare Allstars had witnessed that once Shallow Hals had a lead they were tough to overturn. Stamford AC had one half of football to claim success. They got a good start when James Raynes equalized and it was game on again. The momentum was with Stamford AC and when Tom Cocks put them 2-1 up the pressure switched to Shallow Hals who now needed goals to get back into it. The 4th and final goal of the final proved decisive as Danny Brogan made it 3-1.


There was no way back for Shallow Hals and Stamford AC chalked up a 3-1 victory. Congratulations to Stamford AC, commiserations to Shallow Hals we hope you enjoyed your tour!
