up on Pitch A was Synthes UK 2 versus GBS Reds.
Both teams were looking to put heavy opening
defeats behind them and kick-start their campaign.
Reds were making it eurofootballfives.com appearance
number 14 in Krakow. As well as playing in the
JNJ Euro Soccer Tournament they have graced
public tournaments on the eurofootballfives.com
circuit. They have previously made seven Prague
appearances plus overseas tours to the 2010
Krakow Trophy, the 2011 Amsterdam Fives, the
2012 Berlin Fives, the Plate Champion of Champions
tournament in Budapest 2013 and the JNJ Euro
Soccer Tournaments in Budapest 2013, Bratislava
2014 and now Krakow 2016. They have reached
5 Plate Semi-Finals, 2 Cup Quarter-Finals and
have 2 Plate victories to their name at the
2010 Prague Trophy and 2012 Berlin Fives. Last
year they entered two teams as the A team reached
the Plate Semi-Finals and the B team won the
Wooden Spoon play-off. This year they concentrate
their strength into one team.
Reds had drawn 2-2 with De Puy Synthes 1 the
previous 2 seasons but were yet to face the
2nd team until today. That was obviously about
to change and it was an equally tight contest
with nothing to separate the two teams in the
first half, 0-0.
the second half there was to be a winner – the
goal that settled matters was scored by David
Alonso. It was his second goal in as many games.
In the opening match his goal was a consolation,
in this game it earnt all 3 points for GBS Reds.
