Very early on Saturday morning, 10 Tigers awoke and made their way up to Norwich to attend the Norwich Knight's End of Summer Tournament. We had Manchester Pirates, Norwich Knights and Norwich City 2 in our morning pool.
Instead of a pre-match warm up (we were on first) we decided to moan about how cold it was and how dark the clouds in the distance looked. This turned our to be a bad decision when, 5 seconds into the game, a Manchester Pirate took a running in shot and scored against one of our more able players. Soon after this the Tigers appeared to wake up and finished the game 3-1 up.
Next up was Norwich Knights 1 who we beat 4-0 and after that Norwich City 2 who lost 8-0.
In the afternoon we drew Cambridge City 2 for our quarter final game. The score at the end of 25 minutes was 5-0 to the Tigers. This put us through to the last 4.
It was at this point the rain the weather man had promised started to fall. Luckily it had let up again in time for out semi-final game against Topgunners. It started well for the Tigers who got the first goal and went 1-0 up. It was clear Tigers would struggle to get another since every member of Topgunners was taller than their opposing Tiger. The final score was 6-1 to Topgunners, Tigers did well to only concede 6 goals. The rain started again just after this match finished and so the 3rd/4th play-off match was abandoned. We headed back to Cambridge pleased with our performance. In the evening a few of us went out to say goodbye to Tom who has his last session with Tigers next Wednesday.
Don't forget there are still tickets available for the Ceilidh on the 19th. Tickets are £20 and can be purchased from Lewis.
All those who went to Belgium should remember to bring cheques for petrol and ferry tickets to training next week and hand them in to Tom.
Anyone who hasn't paid Chris for the Norwich tournament should bring £2.50 to training next Wednesday
Hopefully the page should look a bit more Tigery with the orange stripes down the side and Firefox 2 users should no longer see all the text squished up to the right.
