English double in Mallorca - Wilmslow Whoppers & FC Mahou take Open Age & Veterans titles!

The 10th June saw our annual Summer extravaganza of football with the open age and veterans' tournaments sharing the same stage. With 18 open age and 12 veterans teams (a sell out for both) we had a great day of football in a stunning beach setting.

The open age kicked us off first and we witnessed an imperious display from Wilmslow Whoppers who produced 8 wins in 8 games to emerge victorious. Only Spanish side Son Gual got near them with a narrow 1-0 defeat in the group phase and then a 2-0 defeat in the Cup Final. There was added success for Jamie Frost of Wilmslow Whoppers who was the top goalscorer with 15 goals. In the Plate competition it was Inter Balear who were victorious after a sensational 6-4 Plate Final over Shergold's Hairline Harriers.

In the Veterans tournament, FC Mahou were just as impressive as they surged to victory - the first English team to win the Vets since the tournament's inception in 2013. As it turned out, FC Mahou player Steve Sachro used to teach the Wilmslow Whoppers so it was a double success for him (and no doubt a bit of a shock to see his former students on the same football tour!). Southgate County Vets were runners-up and the most improved side in the tournament - eliminated after the group phase in Lisbon 2016 and going all the way to the final in 2017! In the Plate, The Warriors picked up their first success in our tournaments as they defeated Dickie Dogs. Dickie Dogs were also the bridesmaids here in 2014.

The top goalscorer in the Veterans tournament was Pete Cox of FC Mahou with 10 goals from his 7 games.

Thank you to everyone who participated at the event and ensured it was a massive success!
