and into the Plate Semi-Finals. It was an all-England
encounter in the first Semi-Final as Bozeat All
Stars met Barley FC. At stake was a place in the
2012 Barcelona Fives Plate Final.
All Stars had proven tough opposition all day
but the results were up and down. Barley FC were

forward James Reece of Barley FC who scored the
Golden Goal and sent his team into the Plate Final.
It was a tough way to go for Bozeat All Stars
but they'd had a very successful day.
