few of you may be wondering about where the
controversy came from re FC Maroon and the walkover
against Groundforce Lisboa. Well, during the
HS Décor v FC Dynamoes game, Groundforce
returned citing traffic delays after the lunchbreak.
By rights we had to enforce the walkover but
we agreed to talk to FC Maroon to see if they
would play the fixture. It was a difficult position
for us and a difficult position for FC Maroon.
FC Maroon very sportingly agreed to play the
that though we had the matter of ACE & The
Swagmen versus CSB Stars. CSB Stars knew that
a win would guarantee Cup qualification and
a draw may be enough subject to FC Maroon's
result. A defeat would mean they were out as
they would finish below FC Dynamoes.
& The Swagmen were playing for pride (and
the hopes of FC Maroon and FC Dynamoes). It
was always going to be a big ask for The Swagmen
and so it proved as CSB Stars opened up a 3-1
lead at half-time that became 5-2 by full-time.
CSB Stars had ensured Cup qualification so well
done to them.
& The Swagmen's tournament was over and
it was a pleasure to see them all on tour again.
Special mention goes to James Larcombe for his
5 goals on the day and we thank him for organizing
the troops. We hope to see you all again soon.
