In the chilly evening of Friday 27th October, at the rooftop pitches in Bow school, 6 strong teams represented their localities and practices. The Highway team (Network 4) caught the eye early on with their red and white striped kit. There was also a local derby between Limehouse Lions and Lionesses, and the official Network 7 team, mainly fielding players from Aberfeldy. Although the Limehouse and Lionesses, led by Kirsten Shirke, failed to secure a win, they made a fantastic their effort and the only team to consistently field a mix gender team in all games.
Thank you to East End Eagles, representing Network 1, who completed the teams and proved to be a tough opposition for all the teams they faced.
Overall, the Tournament was a fun and competitive night out for all. Thank you to everyone who participated and to their family and friends who came to support the event.
