The 2008 Krakow Trophy Final would be contested by Red Light Runners of Scotland against Complex of Poland. Both teams had performed well to reach this stage in what was a very strong competition.

Red Light Runners looked the fitter of the two teams and this may have proved one match too far for them particularly after the energy extended in a particularly tough contest against Atlant Opole in the semi-finals.

Red Light Runners were oozing confidence and quietly going about their business and they approached the final in much the same way as the rest of the tournament. The Scottish side were always in the ascendancy and took control early in the game. They played with possession, pace and dictated the style of the game as they gradually ran their opponents down.

As Complex bowed under the pressure the chances began to come and with their forwards in such fine form they would not need too many to find the back of the net.

As the game drew on Red Light Runners closed out the game in clinical fashion with goals from Declan Docherty (11 for the tournament), Steven Doherty (10 for the tournament) and a double from Alan Ritchie taking his tournament tally to 5.

If we are talking goalscorers then we can not forget Marek Budka who scored again in the final. His goals alone were not enough as Complex found themselves on the wrong end of a 4-1 result when the referee's final whistle blew to bring the curtain down on the 2008 Krakow Trophy.

Congratulations to Marek Budka Golden Boot winner with 13 goals (a record).

Bigger congratulations to Red Light Runners. A stunning performance to win the 2008 Krakow Trophy which we are sure will be the first of many in Europe .
