The annual Dunfermline City preseason tournament took place on Sunday and we sent a mixed a ability team down to try their luck against a host of other local sides. It's fair to say that we came second quite a lot, but for a team fielding several people who had only been playing for since the summer and three youngsters it wasn't bad at all, with performances improving throughout the day and we came away with a victory in our final game against the hosts.
And what a nice time we had too. It was just stress-free fun from beginning to end.
We should take note of the fearless performance of Finlay McColl, who got stuck into everything that moved, and to Ollie and Pete, who managed to floor each other in a spectacular wipeout that showed the opposition that we really meant business. Oh yes, and to Bart and William, who alternated in goal and kept us afloat until we remembered how to play.
