Xcel Walton over 65’s have proudly won the Cove FC Tournament.
A squad of eight (four over 70 ) contested the Cove 65+ WF Tournament at Cove FC
on Friday 16 February 2018.

After the disappointment of the Cove defeat we showed great character to bounce back with a hard earned victory over a well organised Bracknell side to win the Tournament.
Although highly competitive, matches were played to a high standard and in the right spirit.
A Special thanks to the excellent referees and to Mick Quinn for organising the event and the post match refreshments in the clubhouse.
