The 1990 SKLPC TournamentMarch 22, 2017
Sunday 15th July at Parkside Sports Centre saw the Italian 90 fever for the 2nd time this month in search for the prestigious title of SKLP 5 a side champion 1990. The number of teams who participated this year far exceeded the number of teams expected this caused the some timing problems for the organisers.
The other problem experienced was with the under 16s, some teams blatantly abused the restrictions and formed teams with players who were 16 and over. Consequently they were found and the relevant teams were disqualified. To avoid any discrepancies in the future events, the organisors have decided that all players between the age of 10 and less than 16 must proved a copy of their birth certificate otherwise they will not be able to participate.
Now moving away from the problems and back to the game last years winners and runners Kingsbury and Bendev respectively did not look impressive on the day (probably due to the scorching sun) and just managed to qualify.
Baladia Youth Club came to the tournament with 3 teams and around 100 supporters. The cheers and encouragement from the supports saw one of the teams to the semi-finals.
By far the most impressive teams from the seniors were the Woolwich boys and the KB Youths.
Thank you to all the teams who took part and the spectators who attended to make this afternoon the success it was.
Finally may I take this opportunity on behalf of SKLP to thank everyone who sponsored the above teams and especially Falcon Property Services for donating this years give-away trophies and the cup for the seniors.
