OVER 60’S TOURNAMENT ALICANTE DAY 1
(Matches played using new FA rules – direct free kicks and no pass-backs unless ball played by another player).
We arrived at the ground expecting to be playing the first game of the day against Coleshill. However, they were late arriving so the fixtures were switched and we played our first game against local side Monte Mentals. MM got off to a flying start and bwfc were 3 down within a five minute blistering start from the local team. The second half was much better from bwfc and a goal from John Limbourne pegged MM back briefly but they scored again to finish the game 4-1 winners.
Second game for bwfc followed immediate against the now arrived coleshill. Again, bwfc conceded two quick goals until they steadied the ship with a solid performance second half. However with no more goals, the game ended in a 2-0 defeat. Our final game of the day was against Moraira, the eventual winners of the day’s tournament. Bwfc went 2 down in the first half but fought back to 2-2 after two excellent goals from John Limbourne. The first of these a brilliant free kick curled left footed into the top corner. The second was from a first time finish from a corner played at pace across the box. However Moraira scored two more goals in the second half to see out victory. We may have lost the game but credit to bwfc for stopping the Moraira midfielders who had scored freely in their other games. They scored 6 in each of their other matches!
