There was also time for a lucky draw to win the TFAS/OCC official Polo Tees … which was drawn by Benij’s mother.  The Lucky Player was Luke Radziminski !!

Hopefully this is the start of Subbuteo Melbourne meeting more regularly. In the future anyone is welcome to host a couple of players for some friendly games or competitions.One of his first action, after receiving his prize, was to try it out and he commented “I will wear it for future tournaments !!”

A discussion has been initiated with Subbuteo Japan (日本おはじきサッカー協会, Nihon Ohajiki Soccer Kyokai Subbuteo Japan) on the possibility of having a mutually arranged competition schedule.

This will allow the opportunity of players from both countries to “cross over” and play in each other’s competitions.  This might also include a competition which would be held, either annually or bi-annually, with the host nation alternately between the two countries.

We will keep you posted as the discussion progress …
