7-a-side Comic Relief tournament – UEA – Sunday 20 March 2016


A hastily assembled mixed team arrived at UEA sporting hangovers and sunglasses to represent Magpies at the 7-a-side Comic Relief tournament.

The round-robin event consisted of seven games per team and Magpies won all their seven. They thought it was then over but UEA decided they needed a semi and a final which after energy tablets the team mustered the strength to play!

After more than 2.5 hours pitch time the team somehow found the legs (and heads) to play two more games which they also won to be crowned Champions!

The team consisted of Lucy, Lewis, Lauren, Andrew, Rhea, Adam, Sam and Holly.
