HARROD UK's sixth annual visit to Castricum, Holland, for their end of season tour ended with Harrods winning the tournament going one better than last year when they finished runners up on goal difference.

This year's tournament consisted of four Dutch teams and two teams from France.

Castricum's home team were Harrods first opponents D. Gowing getting the only goal of the game with Q French missing a penalty.

Next up was Sous Bois “B” from Paris this game saw Harrods run rampant scoring eight goals without reply (Q. French 4, K. Gowing 3, D. Gowing 1)

The third game was against The All Stars this resulted in a hat-trick from K. Gowing again without any reply.

Whilst Harrods were playing in Group A, Darrel Hibbert helped referee group B.

The final group game was against Pavillion “B” (D. Gowing 3, Q. French 2, and J. Evans 1) which they won 6-0.

Having scored 18 goals and conceding none, put Harrods in the final against Pavillion “A.”

Pavillion “A” started well but with a back four of S. McKenna, S. Davey, C. Houghton, L.Gowing made sure that Miller in goal had very little to do.

On 10 minutes J. McBride put Q. French away to run the full length of the pitch to slot home the first goal

Good interchange between P. Mc Roberts and J. Evans saw Q. French set up for his second.

Four minutes later French's run to the bye line and pull back gave K. Gowing his 7th goal of the tournament.

The second half, manager S..Phillips put S. Neary and M. Locke into the affray to help secure a three nil victory.
