AFC Basemen (Eng)




Sons Les Onze (Spa)


The first final of the day was the Wooden Spoon Final as the two teams would battle it out for the coveted prize of literally a wooden spoon!

Often the Wooden Spoon Final's provide some of the most entertaining games of our tournaments and this one didn't disappoint. Often it's the carefree attitude of the teams and often the timing of the Final means there are plenty of spectator's cheering the teams on from the sideline creating a cracking atmosphere. It's a chance for teams who have maybe struggled to try and end the day on a high.

The two teams on show were AFC Basemen and Son Les Onze. Both teams can consider themselves unlucky to finish in 5th place in the table in their respective groups. For example, AFC Basemen were ahead more often than they were behind. They drew two and lost their other two group games by the odd goal (having lead in both). They also took points off the Group A winners, Maresmex. In the case of Sons Les Onze they had a good win against Old Boys Magic Blue Dublin to their name.

With the game underway there was nothing to divide the teams in the opening period. In the second half the deadlock was broken and it was captain Robbie Heywood who gave his team the initiative. AFC Basemen moved into a dominant position when Andy Mowll made it 2-0. That combined with their third clean sheet of the tournament and AFC Basemen were victorious.

AFC Basemen were our Wooden Spoon winners today congratulations to them. The debate rages on regarding whether the Wooden Spoon should be collected by the team that wins the match or the team that loses it. As winners, AFC Basemen had the honour of choosing and they nominated to collect the prize as a souvenir of their tour!
