Over 70s Competition
UPDATE...A MESSAGE FROM THE CAPTAIN OF TROON AFC WF...
So, so proud of our wonderful Troon 70s team who were absolutely magnificent in the incredibly testing conditions at the South West of England championships held in Exeter today.After watching the hosts hold a very good Bournemouth side to a 0-0 draw. Troon stepped up for their first game against Bournemouth.A fantastic all round display involving all 8 squad players and a brilliantly worked goal from Steve M saw us claim a 1-0 victory.We followed that up knowing that a draw would be enough against Exeter for Troon to claim the trophy.Unfortunately an early goal conceded and a strong resolute defensive display saw the home team win 1-0. Despite intense pressure and shots getting closer and closer, a fine display from the Exeter keeper, who has represented England, meant Troon had to settle for second place.A great and very enjoyable day out with Troon playing some fantastic football in the right, positive sporting manner.Despite the disappointment of the result we were delighted to see our very own Steve M selected as player of the tournament. Steve was a very worthy recipient but to be fair it could have been any one of the Troon players who all played their parts in what was a very successful and memorable day. And well done to Graham, our worthy captain who never stopped encouraging the team. You did yourselves, our club and Cornwall proud.
Troon AFC Walking Football will be taking an over 70s squad of eight players to Exeter on 18th July.
