The Tigers put on a great team performance to retain their Long Buckby Festival title from last year.

The group stage saw the Tigers win four, draw one and lose one, topping the table with a game to spare and conceding just a single goal, thanks to some great keeping from Max and defending from Jack.

The goals were shared around with Sam, Louie, Josh and Thomas all finding the net, whilst Oscar ran himself into the ground.

A clinical semi-final performance against Long Buckby saw the Tigers win 5-0 with Justin hitting four along with a rare Toby goal.

The final against Green Park was a tight match with the Tigers creating most of the chances, but a strike from Thomas at the start of the second half proved decisive and the 1-0 win saw them lift the cup again.
