BWFC send two 65+ teams on their 2.5hr journey to this tournament. It's a major event as it is truly regional with teams invited from across the South West. It promised to be a tough event but players had a chance to measure themselves against some of the best players and teams in the country and learnt a great deal.
The games were six a side and teams were divided into two pools with the top two in each pool going through to the semi-finals.
Bournemouth Coasters were in pool A with Weston-super-Mare, Abbeymead, and Oldlands.
The squad of Derek Kearey, Paul Nettleton, Neil Williams, Steve Skaith, Andy Phillips, and Derek Baker played very well and topped the pool. They went out in the semi-final against Exeter City after a penalty shootout.
Bournemouth Strollers were in pool B with Dorchester, Exeter City, and Highworth.
