Nomads Mens 040s Masters team finally broke the long standing jinx of the orange away kit with a great performance in the first East Masters Cup hosted by City.
Two tight 1-1 draws against City and Northampton were followed by commanding wins against Royston (3-0) and Witham (2-0). Despite the better judgement of some, the squad went for a pasty break before the next game and the effect of the pastry showed in a mediocre performance against the eventual tournament winners, Broxbourne (0-2). Having finally digested the snacks, the team finished strongly against Luton (2-0) to take 2nd place in the cup.
Goals (and I'm slightly making this up) with three two for Moots, two for Felix (plus a missed flick), couple for Ganja and Mel and one for Arthur. Sorry if I got this wrong but I was standing a long way away.
Well done to everyone for making it through a long afternoon of hockey, with a number of the team having played on Saturday as well. Especially good given we had 12 in the squad and only 11 for some of the games. Great to see a Nomads Vets team out there and playing great hockey.
For the record, final table
Thanks to Cambridge City HC for organising a great day.
