Browns WF Tournament May 2023
20 teams entered the 2 day 5 a side, 3 touch walking football festival
15 players travelled in our 1st overseas tournament, the club has only ever entered one other tournament before , some 3 years ago.
The competition was strong with ex professionals players, experienced teams playing.
Day 1 saw both teams struggle with the heat and pace of the games.
Day 2 needed to be the day that both teams had to perform to reach their respective finals.
The over 50's group had to overcome some strong opposition to reach the final and they played really well and managed to reach the final against a local Portuguese team. The pace was fast and the game went to penalties. Skipton managed to secure the win with some no nerve penalty takers.
The over 60's team comfortably got to the final and played a team from Ipswich , which they dominated the game and won the final.
Both teams excelled and the comraderie, team spirit and a great time was had by all.
