teams to begin their campaign on Pitch C in Group
C were Elcombe Old Boys (Eng) and Argon'ze (Fra).
Old Boys were very well known to eurofootballfives
competition and particularly the Barcelona Fives.
This was their fourth successive appearance in
Barcelona which was a record for a travelling
team. In fact, it was a record for a travelling
team across all our destinations beating Belarus's
CIS Committee's three successive appearances at
the Budapest Fives, The Rain Dragons three successive
appearances at the Amsterdam Fives and the Wafty
Crankers three appearances in Prague (2008, 2011
were a team on debut but did feature Vincent Cafiero
in their team he had played for the Centrale
Paris team that competed at our 2015 Mallorca
Tournament. As part of that team he reached the
Cup Quarter-Finals before going out to Saipan
FC of Ireland in the Cup Quarter-Finals.
was a solid but unspectacular start for both teams.
Andrew Gartshore (Elcombe Old Boys) and Sebastien
Malignon (Argon'ze) both kept clean sheets so
it was point for each team, 0-0.
