Congratulations to the Ellis Jones 5 aside football team
Congratulations to the Ellis Jones 5 aside football team for bringing home the (runners up) trophy from the Bournemouth and District Law Society’s annual 5 aside tournament on Sunday (18 May 2014).
EJFC was made up of Daniel Pidgley, Ian Butterworth, Mark Stutter, Gustav Patrick, Paul Kanolik and the team’s manager Summer (Mourinho) Abrahams.
Playing in the scorching sunshine at Pelham’s Park Leisure Centre EJFC finished the tournament undefeated and in second place.
The tournament was played in a league format and strangely, the final game of the day became the title decider with us facing off against Aldridge Brownlee (the eventual winners).
In that final and decisive game we were 2-0 down after just a few minutes but the team showed great character to bring the score line level at 3-3.
Scores from our games were:
Ellis Jones 3 v 1 Preston Redman
Ellis Jones 3 v 0 Kiteleys
Ellis Jones 1 v 0 Coles Miller
Ellis Jones 0 v 0 3PB
Ellis Jones 3 v 3 Aldridge Brownlee
Goal of the competition for our team was Ian Butterworth’s stunning strike to seal a 1-0 victory against Coles Miller.
Many thanks to the Bournemouth and District Law Society for organising the day and to all the other teams, players and supporters for making it such a successful and enjoyable event.
