ADAM MURRAY WINS THE 2017 PLAYERS' CUP / EUROPA LEAGUE

Author: Julian, 2017/09/18

A first WASPA title for Adam !!!

Saturday 16 September 2017, Pretoria, South Africa
The 2017 Players' Cup attracted a field of 9 players, which included the participation of Gary Downs from EASTERNS TFC. The last minute withdrawal of Stanton Nortjie deprived us of having a nice round figure of 10 players on the day. At the end of Round 1 action, it was the visiting Gary Downs who (playing in his first ever WASPA event) found himself top of the standings thanks to a convincing 2 - 0 victory over Imtiaz Ahmed. Round 2 saw a massive clash between Adam Murray & Gary Downs - and Adam took the victory, scoring with just 3 minutes left to play. Adam then followed up with another massive victory by 1-0 over Sherwin Reed - the goal coming with only 11 seconds left to play !!! Marlin Boyd then battled to a hard fought 0-0 draw against pre-tournament favourite Osvaldo van Niekerk. By the end of Round 2 the standings were Adam Murray (1st), Marlin Boyd (2nd) and Gary Downs (3rd).
Round 3 action saw Conway Julie hold Gary to a 0-0 draw. Then a surprise result saw Adam drop vital points to Antonio Abdeziet in a 0-0 draw whilst Marlin tied Adam on 5 points thanks to a 1-0 victory over Sherwin !
Gary secured 3rd place overall with a 1-0 win over Rowin Wilson in Round 4 action - not a bad outing for Gary at all !
The event was then forced into a final play-off match when both Adam & Marlin ended on a total tally of 7 points by recording 1-0 wins in their Round 4 matches. The day's action was then rounded off by a thrilling final play off match with both Adam & Marlin playing good attacking Subbuteo - but thanks to good goalkeeping skills from both players, the match ended 0-0. The drama then continued further as Adam won 3-2 on shots to clinch his first ever WASPA title !
Marlin's superb 2nd place overall was rewarded when he received the PFC club shirt as well.

As always, a big thank you to all who attended to make the day a great success.
