up was The War of the Roses as Yorkshire took
on Lancashire…..in Budapest. It was Leeds One
United versus DePuy Blackpool. The latter were
on debut in our tournaments but the former were
experienced in the event.
One United made their debut at the 2014 edition
of the competition. In 2014, they competed as
S & OP FC and their games provided us with
more goals than any other team competing – 38
goals in 6 fixtures. It started with a 9 goal
thriller they narrowly lost 5-4 to JNJ Zug before
a debut win 2-0 over Gerri Hatricks FC. They
went down 4-1 to JNJ Russia B before a great
3-2 win over J&J Poland. They then lost
to the champions in waiting JNJ High Wycombe
A. They had qualified for the Plate Semi-Finals
where the champions from Budapest 2013, JNJ
Russia A, accounted for them.

to Cilag Team 2 (Swi) whereas Leeds Two lost
out in the Wooden Spoon play-off to GBS Reds
