up was Policia Local de Palma of Spain against
the 3 Lions of England. The host team were making
their debuts but it was appearance number 3
for Chris Baginsky's men. 3 Lions made their
debut in the 2008 Barca Fives. They came very
very close to going home with a trophy when
they finished runners-up in the Plate competition.
They returned to action in the 2009 Amsterdam
Fives where they were outstanding in the group
phase winning 10 points out of 12 to take Group
A before a surprise Cup quarter-final exit.
They will be looking to make amends in Mallorca.
Local de Palma were proving to be a tough opposition
though and as with the first game in Group A
we arrived at the break level at 0-0. Once again
we were to avoid a no score draw as Policia
Local de Palma emerged victorious scoring the
only goal of the game through Jaime Garau Calero.
His goal earned all 3 points for the Policia.
3 Lions joined the CSF at the foot of the table
but plenty of time to go.
