Dad were making their fifth eurofootballfives
appearance in Barcelona. The 2011 Prague Masters
was the destination for their debut with us where
they reached the Plate Quarter-Finals. They followed
this up by playing in the 2012 Valencia Fives
where they narrowly missed out on glory, losing

Csabagyongye before they struggled with results
but were not outclassed with two narrow defeats.

missed out on the knock-out stage. FC Dad drew
a tough group at the 2014 Budapest Fives that

FC Radbroke and eventual Runners-Up, Argentina.
They finished the group phase on a high with a
1-0 win over Old Man Hortor's Revival. They continued
their winning form into the Trophy Quarter-Finals
with a 2-1 win over RS Ocean Village FC before

on the path to victory. There was also an Andy
Jones goal from the half-way line.
