Over 60 Cub Scouts (girls and boys aged 8-10½) competed in their annual 5-a-side football tournament in St. Johns last week. Many groups entered 2 teams making a total field of 16 teams from 11 Cub Packs.
Colin Brew, one of the event’s organizer said, “This is definitely the most teams I think we’ve ever had.” Colin is Cub leader of the Cushag Cub Pack at 1st Douglas. “In the last few years we’ve had on average 10 teams. I’ve had to really adjust the fixtures to try and fit the games needed.”
2nd Onchan’s Manannan A team beat their Manannan B team in the final, while 3rd Peels A team beat 2nd Onchan’s Snaefell team in the 3rd place playoff. Congratulations to Ben from Manannan was awarded player of the tournament.
