Versatility Tournament - 09th September
17 teams took part in the Versatility Tournament on the 9th September. Semi finalists were Breakspear Red, Kardale Red, St. Albans Open and Jets. A hard fought final was played between Jets and Kardale Red, with Jets coming out on top”.
LEAGUE END OF SEASON TOURNAMENT
Our end of season tournament on the 22nd April was once again a charity event.
This year, the league voted to support SNAP (Special Needs Activity & Play, part of St. Albans Mencap), and Breast Cancer Care. We had a raffle and a cake stall for which every team brought cakes and donated a raffle prize; a ‘Guess the number of goals scored during the tournament’ (the prize was a netball); every player paid £2 to take part. One of our members managed to get a genuine Tottenham Hotspur No. 10 shirt signed by Harry Kane, for which we invited bids.
It was a very successful afternoon and we raised £1,220 to be divided between the two charities.
The final was very closely fought between Breakspear Reds and Jets, with Breakspear finishing as winners.
