With the weather on Saturday being drab and wet for the start of the event, the Scouts didn’t let this dampen their spirit and were eager to play from the get-go. We entered two teams; one 25th team and one 25th/12th, both teams fought ferociously against the other district teams, with both teams winning all of their league games bar 1 a piece.
Come the interlude and the american style penalty shoot-out competition, which the 25th/12th team came runners-up to the 8th Lewisham South.
After the interlude, they clouds parted and the semi finals began; the 25th teams had good rivals in the 8th Lewisham South and the 9th Lewisham North but at full-time both teams held their nerve and managed to score some cracking goals securing them both places in the final.
As the final game began and the afternoon light started to withdraw, the 10 Scouts played a great game scoring 2 goals a piece… but with moments spare, the 25th team scored a third goal against the 25th/12th team making them the winners for 2015.
The 25th haven’t won the 5 aside football 24 years (since 1991)! and from all the leaders of the 25th we send a huge well done to all of those who took part in a historic victory for the group.
