First of all: sportstables: it is now a must have, very useful app to share the table a pity it doesn't prepare the fixture! it will be adopted at the IC2014!

Congratulation Andy, solid performance there!
Surprising second place for Garry, who confirms (although the inactivity) his great world cup in Birmingham. In Golf, this is sure a Birdie
6-0-6 for Steve, this is surely a Par!.
Apart Ely who was far behind, very nice challenge for the third place: 4 players in 4 points.
Nice tournament! well done guys!
Now writes up and pictures please!

Congrats Andy for a perfect performance!

Not sure how I got 3rd place, I'm sure I lost most games :?o:

Huuuge thanks to Durban for an epic hosting effort. His tireless dedication made this happen.

Awesome to see Chris attending. Such a great guy and world class talent.

Ely is back. This is a very welcome development!

Great to get a kobra representative turn up and wow, what a performance. A well deserved 2nd spot.

Robert was in attendance (fashionably late). That makes it an official UKC.

Well that was a FUN weekend! It's amazing how after over 5 years of inactivity you can slip straight back into being so rubbish as Kick Off 2 :lol:

Congrats to Andy for a flawless performance, and to Garry, Steve, Chris, Robert and Durban for such a great little tournament. We really need to do more Golden Goal knockout games, quick and super tense and exciting.

Special extra mentions to Durbans for organising it all and Chris for making the trek so far to a hotel in Birmingham right next to the M5 (such exotic surroundings!) to play a bit of KO2.

Oh and thanks to Robert for introducing me to the ways of the Lockout formation. I wish I'd tried it earlier, that'd might have cut my goals conceeded down a bit!

This won't make me hanker for World Cups I don't think, but I'm up for the next UKC in 2015 for sure.

Even if it's just a non official get together at least once a year, we must keep these KO2 meetings going in the UK; look at the sheer fun we get out of them!

It was a pleasure to be with MarK W, Mark E, Rob, Garry, Steve C and especially the latest addition to the KO2 Viking talent, Chris.

And of course, Durban, thank you mate for making this happen.

Well played guys, apart from the World Cup itself the UK Champs is the most historic KOA tournament by far, great job keeping it alive. I hope you have some better quality pictures for us. Congratulations Andy, great to see Chris making the trip and Ely playing again after five whole years! I see you gave him a shirt of shame to wear, beautiful.
