04 FJ Cup Final
Sunday August 22nd 2010 YCAC.
YCFC showed once again that they are the team to beat in 7 a side competition as they took the honors in the fiercely contested Summer 7s tournament.
The defending champions met BFC in the first semi final. It was a cagey start to the game, both teams playing cautiously & no doubt trying to adapt to the searing heat. The deadlock was eventually broken when YCFC’s ever dependable talisman Anthony Savage volleyed the ball home after good build up play from Matt Wallace and Mikey Taw. This kicked started the game into life and both teams began to play more free flowing football. more

Fukuda Denshi, May 22nd, 2010.
It was a nice season for the Swiss: A sweet winning streak that brought promotion to Division 1, good performances in the New Year's and Charity 7's and a great turnout of players for the games. The plate would be the icing on the cake: Not the most prestigious title, but a title nonetheless.
The opposition in the final were the Jet 2nds, a team that is still in the run for promotion to the second division and looked like a stronger oppostion than their first team in the semi-final. more
