So who would claim the Wooden Spoon in the 2011 Budapest Fives? This was only the fifth time we had run such a competition and the roll call of winners reads;

Moss Deb FC, Portgugal 2009 Algarve Open

Milton FC, Portugal - 2010 Algarve Open

Dot Cotton's Flaps, Ireland 2010 Prague Masters

Warranty Direct FC, England 2010 Valencia Fives

Would it be a second England or a first Sweden win that would be added to this list?

Whiteley VII will have painful memories of the 2010 Algarve Open when they lost the Wooden Spoon final to Milton FC. Emlyn Hughes will have even more painful memories as a clash of heads led to a face full of blood and a hospital visit. Thank goodness for our on site medical staff we hope they would not be needed in this final and indeed they were not.

Both teams had just secured their first win of the day and a second now would secure glory and ensure the wooden trophy would be heading back home in their luggage. It was as if Whiteley FC were spurred on by last year's defeat as they came out like a team possessed. A Magyar Pekseg must have wondered what hit them as Whiteley FC scored 5 goals in the first half. Even a goal from Johan Persson only temporarily stemmed the flow. The result was effectively decided but there was still time for another goal to put the icing on a 6-1 cake. The hat-trick hero of the game was Jake Alford who moved onto 6 for the tournament. There was also a goal for Whiteley VII's own Scandanavian Glenn Hillstrom with his third of the day. Our commiserations go to A Magyar Pekseg and we hope this is their first tournament of many and they are the pioneers for more Swedish teams in eurofootballfives.com tournaments.
