Stratton Metals Lift Pcubed City Touch Trophy

6th August 2011

On a very warm afternoon at the Honourable Artillery Company’s grounds in the City of London twelve teams battled it out in the annual City Touch Tournament, hosted and organised by London Skolars and sponsored by Pcubed.

Whilst there was definitely a fun element to proceeding there was a very competitive edge with every team giving their all on a hot, humid afternoon. The twelve teams were divided into two leagues of six, who then played their matches on the two pitches that had been so immaculately prepared by the HAC groundsmen.

From the twelve teams that started the afternoon we eventually had our semi-finalists. Last year’s winners Bloomberg failed to make the final, going out to a golden point in added time and the other losing semi-finalists were ETF Securities, who had battled hard all afternoon. This left Goldman Sachs and Stratton Metals to take to the field one more time, their seventh game of an energy sapping afteroon, and battle it out for the honour of lifting the winners trophy. Ten minutes were played but this couldn’t seperate the teams who finished regulation time tied on two points a piece. The match then went to a golden point decider and it was Stratton Metals who scored the decisive point with a breakaway try to break the hearts of their gallant opponenets, Goldman Sachs, who had to content themselves with the runners-up trophy and medals.

Skolars Captain Neil Thorman presented the winners trophy to Stratton Metal’s Keith Dunleavy, seen above with his team, sporting their winners medals.

All in all a great afternoon of touch rugby played in near perfect surroundings and finished off with a BBQ on the lawns of the HAC and a cold beer or two!
