the result above, Missing Magpies had a great
opportunity going into their third fixture as
they took on DHFC. If they could win the game
they would open up a 2 point lead at the top
of the table. A draw would not be the end of
the world keeping them joint first with a 5
point advantage over the others.
DHFC, they had just scored their first goal
in eurofootballfives.com and registered their
first point on the European stage. Could they
continue that progression and go one step further
by taking their first victory?
Magpies first stop on the eurofootballfives.com
tour was the Amsterdam Fives in 2012 where they
had an impressive debut. They finished 2nd in
their 6-team group and were only beaten to the
title by (now) 3-times eurofootballfives.com
winners, Athletico Do Hollande. They went on
to the Cup Semi-Finals and missed out on a debut
final after defeat to El A Dees. The 2014 Barcelona
Fives saw them draw a very tough group that
included 2013 winners Los Swallacticos of NI
and eventual 2014 winners Monexy of Ukraine.
They finished a more than respectable 3rd. In
the Plate competition they stormed to a 4-0
Quarter-Final win over Ireland's Balotellitubbies
before a 3-1 defeat to (now) double Plate winners
Naranjitos of Spain.
Magpies were on the charge for Cup qualification
again as they made it 3 wins out of 3 as they
took victory in a close contest here. Goals
from Henry Pescod and Luke Bird saw them edge
out DHFC by 2 goals to 1. David Mobbs opened
his account for the day but sadly for him and
his team-mates it was to only be a consolation.
