Higgs just a step away in the final reckoning
BTSS football tournament - Monday 15th June, 2015
On Monday evening, the Higgs team donned its red wine kits again to take part in the BTSS football tournament at Aston University. The time had come for the players to redeem themselves from a less than impressive start to the tournament last month.
The goals came slowly at first, with a starting line-up featuring O'Connor in goal and Dolman and Bollard up front on attack. It was Bollard's debut for the team and she tried her best to prove herself worthy of the prestigious red jersey!
Cowles stepped in half way through proceedings to rally his tired team and boy did he whip them into shape! After a few cheeky goals (and tasty tackles) against Trowers Hamlin in the quarter finals, Higgs found themselves in the final facing Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co (Wragges)
Higgs came out on top, 5 - 0 in their first meeting, but as the sun set on the tournament, the Higgs team sadly lost the final battle 2 - 1.
Second place represents a huge step up for the team, and the players should take heart from an excellent all round performance. Next stop: the rounders tournament in July.
May our success continue to grow.
