Terry Edwards Fun Day  211

La Liga Liphook            

This year, with so much interest in Spanish clubs and their players in the EUFA Champions League, the Liphook United Terry Edwards Fun Day was based on clubs in the Primera División of the Liga Nacional de Fútbol Profesional (LFP), commonly known as La Liga.

Alas, all thoughts of basking in Spanish sunshine and sipping Sangria, were pulled up short as on 17 July over 150 Liphook United players converged on Liphook Recreation Ground under thick billowing clouds that issued periodic torrential downpours.

Organiser Mark 'Lionel Messi' Culverhouse was undeterred and between downpours arranged players in to four groups of La Liga teams. In each group, players across a range of ages played together in a mini soccer tournament.

But it wasn't only the players to have some fun. Parents and helpers participated as referees and team managers to ensure that the group fixtures ran smoothly. Details and action photos of each of the groups follow below.
