Well played everyone, and congrats to all the trophy holders, esp Andy ... The UK Champion!!
The Golden Goal Cup was super fun too, and well done Evil for winning... had lunch back come earlier we would have seen a different player much earlier!

Just got home... gruelling drive home after a long weekend... all good fun though!
A pleasure to meet up with you all after so long, and nice to meet Ian and Tim... Have to feel for Tim though....
There is this new guy, Tim, friend of Ian, who has not played KO for 20 years... decides not to play the league for fear of being pummelled and then dropping out, so waits for the Cup competition.
As its Golden Goal, and it's the prequalifying round, Tim is up against Gary.
Kick Off Lob!!! Gary scores ... Gary wins! Poor Tim didn't even get a touch of the ball, and his game, and indeed day was over!!!
Birmingham hospitality for newcomers lol The KOBRA stings again...

:lol:

Fantastic idea by Simon to make
Cup a golden goal event.

We had ten players to bottom 3 from league plus newbie Tim drew for a pre-qualification round.

Tim unlucky to lose to Garry's KO lob without even a touch (a feat Garry would repeat in his next game)

It really worked well and was both entertaining and quick (took 15 mins and everyone watched every game...a real team event!)

I suggest we take this idea forward to future world cups

Anyone can win and really mixes up the competition and makes for a fun event.

I reckon 32 players would take maybe an 45 but on the big screen would e amazing, as Rob said it would be a fair replacement of the game of shame!

Congratulations Andy! And a BIG UP for Mark, who's SO getting his game back on, after going online. :) Nice to see the Birmingham-lads back in action as well. Steve C picking up another podium-spot. And sure nice to see both Robert and Sid back in action. May there be many, many more:)
