Benji Batten wins in Melbourne

The Melbourne Subbuteo Club hosted its first regional tournament to coincide with school holidays. A strong field of five players each represented a national team in a world cup themed tournament. The players played a round robin group with 15 minute halves which produced many goals and great games. Special mention goes to Harrison Vercoe and Gilli Inbar who played in their first tournaments and were able to find the back of the net. At the end of the group stage the table looked as such:
1. Benji Batten (Brazil)- 12 Points
2. Luke Radziminski (Poland)- 9 points
3. Eial Donnenfeld (Argentina)- 6 points
4. Harrison vercoe (Italy)- 3 points
5. Gili Inbar (Australia)- 0 points


The final between two of Melbourne’s best players; Benji and Luke was played in Great Spirit with Benji able to overturn the result of February’s final to win his first tournament (3-1). Thanks everyone for a great day, it’s really good to see fellow younger players and hopefully we can get more as we continue moving forward!
