Tournament 7th February 2020

What can I say - AMAZING! 


Nottingham Forest hosted a 20 team tournament on Friday 7th February at the YMCA pitches in Newark.


Coach Rhodes-Yeoman's had been focusing on tournament play / short game play and the tactics plus the skill of the players showed through.

Finished top of our group with 5 wins and a draw - the team looked superb. Only one team scored more points than us. If we had won all games we would have gone straight through to the final - but alas it was a semi final against John Hunt.

Unfortunately we lost this game due to an early goal and we were unable to get past their very strong back line. However, we then played a 3/4th place playoff against Bleasby which was very competitive but ended in a victory for Farndon. We finished 3rd place out of 20 teams...………………. Farndon have come a long way and teams are scared of us!!


A big thank you to Mr Rhodes-Yeomans who gives up lots of his time to coach the team and accompany them to matches. And a massive well done to all the players - you were fantastic.
