We arrived at the Plate Quarter-Final stage and we would shortly see eight teams reduced to four teams. To begin it was Meglapetes versus Budapest Celtic Tigers. The pre-determined draw meant the 3rd best 3rd placed team would meet the best 6th placed team with the former being Meglapetes who would be favourites going into this game.

Although Meglapetes, the only thing guaranteed was that we would have one Hungarian team through to the Plate Semi-Finals. It was Meglapetes who were living up to their favourites tag early on and they lead 1-0 at half-time thanks to Laszlo Horvath.

Budapest Celtic Tigers were not letting them have it all their own way though as Dani Botlik equalized. This was a tough game for Meglapetes and they really had to scrap out victory. Norbert Savvnoh grabbed the goal that put them 2-1 up and in the end secure victory.

Sadly, it was the end of the day for Budapest Celtic Tigers – there would be no 3rd successive Budapest final for them.


The second Quarter-Final saw Wokingham FC take on BBFC2 in what was to be an intriguing affair. The build-up to the game was particularly interesting as Wokingham FC were on a fine run of form having lost their first two games were now unbeaten in three games and playing very well. BBFC2 reached this stage via a thrilling penalty shoot-out victory over Los Langeros.

If we were looking for a clue to form we could look at an early Group A game where Wokingham met BBFC1 and lost 0-2. Could BBFC2 emulate their sister squad? It was looking good early doors when William McCready put BBFC2 ahead. As the game went on the score remained 1-0 and try as they might Wokingham FC couldn't find the goal that would bring them back on level terms. Final score, 1-0, and we had to say farewell to Wokingham FC…until the pub at least.

William McCready was making it a habit of becoming the match-winner – he bagged the winning penalty in the play-off and bagged the winning goal in the Quarter-Finals. BBFC2 were through.


It was England versus Ireland in the third Quarter-Final as Bozeat All Stars met The Milf Hunters. It was 4th place in Group B versus 5th place in Group C and for that reason Bozeat All Stars were favourites. They could easily have made the Cup competition but too many draws thwarted their progress including three successive draws.

The last two of these draws had been 0-0. If they'd found goals hard to come by recently the lunch break had given them time to find their shooting boots. They scored three in the first half alone thanks to Dan Bayes and Nick Loizou (2). After the turnaround they showed no mercy as Joel Piper (2), Richard Farman and Barrie Henderson added to the total.

There was to be some joy for the Milf Hunters as Derek O'Sullivan and David Long (four for the tournament) scored a couple of consolation goals. It was a sensational scoreline with a final score of 7-2.

The Milf Hunters would join their sister-squad Los Langeros on the sidelines. Bozeat All Stars marched on.


The final Quarter-Final saw England versus Ireland again as Red Cow Belgrade met The Puskas Dolls. The English team started brightly but their form tailed off towards the end of the group phase. The Puskas Dolls were still searching for their first win but had only lost twice. Like Bozeat All Stars above they had fallen victim to too many draws.

They were to get their breakthrough win in this game and at just the perfect time. They had their talisman Emmet Egan to thank as he bagged a hat-trick that saw his team through to the Semi-Finals. Goals for Nick Howitt and Tom Goyski were not quite enough for Red Cow Belgrade and they bowed out at this stage.

We'd like to thank Red Cow Belgrade for choosing the Budapest Fives for their 2013 tour and making their debut. We hope to see you on tour again soon.
