The Dragons were invited to enter a team in to the tournament by Medwyn Lewis, a Dragons player but also an officer of North Wales Police. We of course jumped at the chance to help out and gathered a squad of 15 players.
The morning of the tournament one of the teams representing Greater Manchester Police pulled out. The Dragons were then asked to split the team in half and enter 2 teams.
The team I was a part of had mixed fortunes in our 4 games, losing the first game 1-0 in a game which could have gone either way against North Wales Police Team 1, then beating tournament favourites Greater Manchester Police 2-1 (which was their only loss of the tournament) we then had to play our Dragon’s counterparts in which we managed to win narrowly 1-0. Our final game was a 5-4 loss to North Wales Police Team 2.
Our team finished 3rd in the table and was entered into a 3rd & 4th place playoff game which after a 2-2 draw went to penalties. North Wales Police were successful on the spot kicks winning 3-1.
