Last week Esendex participated in the Nottingham Chamber of Commerce 5-a-side football tournament.
Plenty of promise was on show from the fledgling team, with many team members playing their first competitive football match! Esendex FC were undefeated in the group stages with four wins and a hard-fought draw against teams with a larger pool of players available (and a few ringers). The tournament came to a close in the knock-out final due to a series of bizarre refereeing decisions.
As group winners we may yet make the regional play-off’s later this month, if not we’ll continue to train and look to win next year’s event.
Man of the tournament was Neil ‘Schmeichel’ Kilbride, with a number of fine saves – but this really was a great team effort.
