Easter Soccer Camp 2018

Some of the hardy souls that braved atrocious weather conditions all week to participate in our annual Easter Soccer camp. Well done to everyone involved. Just a pity about the weather.

Our Last Man Standing competition moves on to round 7 after the weekend’s series of matches. We are now left with 17 players left standing in the pursuit of the title of Last Man Standing champion and the €500 prize after 31 players made their exit from the competition. Arsenal’s 3-2 home win over relegation threatened Southampton saw 16 players progress with North London neighbours Tottenham’s 2-1 away win over Stoke helping a lone player through to the next round. Disappointment struck for 14 players as Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge by West Ham while 7 players who selected Leicester went out as they went down 2-1 at home to Newcastle. A further 4 players went out when their choice Brighton could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield. Bournemouth’s thrilling 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace meant another 3 players went by the wayside. Champions elect Manchester City seemed to be heading for the title when they led 2-0 against local rivals United but the Red Devils fought back to win 3-2, a result which meant the end in the competition for 2 of our players who went with City. Swansea’s 1-1 draw with West Brom did neither side any favours in their bid to beat the drop even though the Baggies already looked doomed, it also didn’t work out for 1 of our players who selected the Swans as the result meant they exited the competition. We had three big name casualties in round 6 with two times previous winner Greg Dunne, Anthony Earls who won our second competition back in 2015 and Jonathan Lewins winner of competition 2 in 2016 all making their exit from the competition. As it stands we still have one previous champion [James Nolan] still battling away to claim the crown for a second time but we’re sure the other 16 players will be doing everything in their power to prevent that happening as they will be hoping to add a new name to the list of winners.
