Soccersixes Chris Murphy commented: “We could not have wished for it to have operated more smoothly than it did. 12 teams turned up, the games were played in good spirit and refereed by top quality FA officials.

“We were surprised at the number of spectators – there must have been in all more than 500 people.”
