Brisbane Subbuteo Club held its 3rd tournament in Narangba, and it was very pleasing to have 2 new players competing.
Rob and Andrew Bennett from Ipswich joined regulars Rik, Giuseppe and Gus, and a great day of matches ensued.
Although Rob and Andrew have not played for many years, they certainly showed that they can play, and improved as the day wore on. With a month of practice ahead of them, they will no doubt have more of an impact on the next tournament.
After the initial round of games, the semi finals were contested between Giuseppe v Andrew, and Rik v Gus, both close games, with Rik avenging an earlier round defeat to Gus, who recorded his first 2 tournament victories today.
The final was between Giuseppe and Rik, for the 3rd time in as many competitions, and once again, Giuseppe turned on the style for the big occasion, using his Juventus team to run out 4-2 winners over Rik’s Stoke City.
A great day was had by all, and special thanks go to Gus’ son Will, who helped out with the scoreboards.
