The 2012 Le Tournoi Football Challenge

2012-football-50.jpgWell we managed to find a 48-hour period of blazing sunshine – hard to believe but for the tenth time in twelve years the Football Challenge was blessed with great weather and great football. Although slightly down on numbers from the previous year, the 2012 event will be remembered for being hassle-free, friendly and the first to welcome our Patron, the Lieutenant Governor.

A new name appeared on the Mens Challenge trophy, with Green Gardens beating previous champions HSBC 2-0 in a hotly contested final. In the Plate Final, finance industry stalwarts Hawksford beat Ogier by a single goal.

The Minis Challenges are kept uncompetitive in nature but at the Under 14 level, Jersey Wanderers lifted the silverware.
