Huntswood Lift Trophy For Third Year

Congratulations to Huntswood who won the Reading FC Former Players' Assocation's five-a-side tournament for the third year running. Huntswood were given a bit of a scare in the final being 1-0 down for a period of time but come through strong towards the end to win the trophy.

The plate competition was won by Harding Print Solutions who beat Penta in the final. It was the the second year running that Penta have lost the plate final.

The event was brought to a close with an exhibition match between the event winners, Huntswood, and a Reading FC Former Players team. The game took place in the main arena of the Woodley Carnival and a large ground gathered to watch a very enteratining match. The Reading FC team was a strong side that included Phil Brown, Brian Howard, Kevin Watson, Ibranimo Sonko and Martyn Williams. Despite the Royals' experience, and scoring eight goals, they were still defeated 9-8 by Huntswood.

All teams enjoyed the event and were given out goody bags with items in from our sponsors Huntswood, Fyffes, Waitrose Woodley and Sweatshop. We would also like to say a big thank you to the Woodley Carnival committee and Woodford Park Leisure centre.

Event organiser George Friel said, "This years tournament has once again beeen a success. This is the first year we have used Woodford Park and this is a fantastic facility. We very much look forward to using these facilities in the next few years. I would also like to say a big thank you once again to Kate Parkinson for her help - this was our 7th tournament together - and the Reading FC Former players assocation board members for all their help."

We look forward to holding this tournament again next year, working with Woodley Cranival and Woodford Park Leisure centre.
