The first year of the Hamilton Subbuteo Club is in the books and thanks to the core and regular group of revolving players. We have many players coming back from a busy summer and some new players starting in September and the club is expecting to be having full 16 man tournaments (and for the regulars it's time to get a pitch and board so the same two don't have to always lug theirs or a collective purchase). We have asked WASPA if we can hold two tournament in our boring months of November & February and have the second tourney in each month count for July & August and it's been granted. We will see if we adopt this. I would also like to propose a Champions tournament as we have enough to run a league within a league, extra games played at tournaments and possibly off days if need be.
As for the tournament, 10 players took part, both quarter-finals went to penalties. Kevin Suffoletta beat Liam Sexton and Brodyn Sexton beat Shaun Burt. Semi-finals results were Peter Sexton beating Kevin and Stephen Mc Nab beating Brodyn. With Peter already cementing the league title, Stephen could have propelled to runner-up over Shaun but the cards weren't in his favour. Peter finished up with another victory.
