Last weekend saw Ely Subbuteo Premier Leauge host their first Subbuteo World Cup event from Southery.
The Southery 2006 Subbuteo World Cup’s full fixture list was based on the real World Cup, and 36 players all eager to lift the World Cup Trophy travelled to Southery to compete.
After 63 games and loads of fun along the way, Jason Flack’s Poland and Scott Insall’s Argentina made it to the Subbuteo World Cup Final. Argentina went into the game as favourites and didnt dissappoint, beating Poland 3-0 in a game that was hotly contested by both players. A fitting end to a fantastic day for all concerned.
As well as winning the World Cup, Scott Insall also took the Golden Boot for scoring the most goals, with 17.
‘We are going to try and run tournament every year’ commented Andy Everitt, one of the organisers. ‘Everyone loved it, even the woman and children, everyone had a great day’
There will be a DVD of the tournament available very shortly. Pricing will be a meargre Â£5.00. So what you waiting for, reserve your copy now by getting in touch with Ely Online.
