Elcombe Old Boys victory in Barcelona is 4 years in the making!

The 2016 Barcelona Fives was our largest single tournament ever with a whopping 32 teams from England, France, Ireland, Italy, Northern Ireland and Spain battling it out for glory. We had 133 games and saw 367 goals scored on the day but just 1 overall winner - Elcombe Old Boys!

Elcombe Old Boys were making their fourth successive appearance in Barcelona and had unfinished business after their Cup Semi-Final exit on penalties last year. This year they made a debut Cup Final and would go to a penalty shoot-out again. This time they were successful against fellow countrymen, The Spice Boys. For The Spice Boys to make it all the way to the Cup Final on debut was a great achievement and they were so unlucky to miss out on the ultimate title.

In the 2016 Plate competition it was success for Club Esportiu Llefia - last year's Cup winners and defending champions. Some early lost points in the group phase de-railed their Cup challenge but they finished strongly to pick up more silverware as they saw off Leek High Boys, 2-0, in the Plate Final. Alfred Jimenez de Andres of Club Esportiu Llefia who the day's top goalscorer with 11 goals in 10 games including one in the Plate Final to clinch the individual honours.

In the Trophy tournament there was more success for Spain as Bolivar defeated Giggs Boson FC to the winners medals. As in the Cup Final, a penalty shoot-out was needed to secure the win after a 1-1 draw in normal time. Bolivar (who played as Equipo de Christian) last year became the first team to successfully defend a Trophy in eurofootballfives.com competition.

It was a great day's competition and another fantastic climax to a superb year of tournament action across Europe. Our 2017 season kicks off in Budapest in April - we hope to see you there!
