Bellavista Social Club New Year Football Tournament
The Bellavista Social Club held its first sporting event on Sunday 16th January 2005. 8 teams managed to get themselves out of bed before 10am for this exciting event.
There were three teams from St Benet Biscop High School and friends (Competitive Dad, Dynamo Gringos and Broken Toe Athletico), two teams from Newcastle University School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences (Geomatics and Inter-Ye-Mam), two teams from local football leagues (The Diggers and Heaton Rifles) and one team of unfit NUFC supporters (The Knackers, featuring our very own El Presidente Doug).
Competition was tight, but Inter-Ye-Mam managed to clinch the Winners Cup, with Geomatics coming a close second. Broken Toe Athletico, the only mixed team, just clinched the prestigious Losers Medal, but only after a 3-3 draw and penalty shoot-out against The Knackers.
THANKS to everyone that played, to the supportors of all ages, and to our first-aider Heather. Thanks for all your contributions, and to Newcastle University Sports Centre for giving us the hire for half-price, giving us a profit of £150 for the young lads of Bellavista.
