Sainsbury’s on the spot in Potters Bar Rotary Club competition

A PENALTY shoot-out was required to decide the winners of the annual Potters Bar Rotary Club six-a-side football tournament.

After a long battle, the 10 team competition was won by Sainsbury’s.

Also taking part was a team from the Potters Bar Edition, although our participation was limited to the group stages!

The event, held at the Furzefield Centre on Sunday last week, helped raise �850.

Rotary club president Pat Rowatt said: “Our grateful thanks go to the players and supporters who we hope have enjoyed this event.

“Our special thanks also go to Furzefield Centre for the use of the pitches, St John Ambulance for their support on the day, the referees for giving up their time, Crusaders Football Club for the use of their facilities and finally to John Metzelaar [referee] for his tremendous help and support over the years.”

One of the defeated Potters Bar Edition players, reporter Simon Wesson, said: “After drawing our first game – with the team who turned out to be the eventual winners – and winning the next, we were feeling pretty confident.

“Unfortunately somehow we fell apart after that and we were rightfully knocked out.

“As always it was a very enjoyable day though and I am sure we will return next year.”
