The lads headed to Glasgow for the walking football Scottish cup on Saturday 23/06/18. As this was their first proper competitive tournament, the lads had no expectations, feet were planted firmly on the ground.
The lads done really well in the early stages by winning their group. One of the highlights was a 4-1 win against the mighty Portland Bill’s Seaside Squad (AKA Montrose). Sadly, Arbroath lost out in the quarter finals to the Gerryhatricks on penalties. It was a frustrating loss as they were cruising at 2-0, but a couple of mistakes let their opponents back in the game. The lads genuinely felt that they could have gone further.
No vote was taken, but the general consensus was that Darin Bell was the MVP. Well done, very well deserved.
It was a very well organised event, no waiting about, no messing about, and most importantly, there were free bananas. Seriously though, it was an extremely well run event and the lads can’t wait to return next year, hopefully with more than one squad.
A big thanks from all at the club to all involved in the organisation and the running of the festival.
Once again, another massive thanks to Arbroath FC for the loan of the kits.
