Caldicot Walking Football Tournament

On a sunny, slightly crisp Sunday morning in Caldicot, Teams from Caldicot, Newport County, Hereford Town, Chepstow, Tenby and Alltudion fought for the title of Caldicot Open champions of 2019.

This was the first time Alltudion's enjoyed being able to choose from nearly the full squad, but with many players never having played together, it was always going to be a learning curve.

After a slow start, but still with a 1-0 opening game win against tournament favourites Newport County, we settled down and the front 3 of Mark Jones, Roger Payne and Mark Mellars started to produce some quality football. That said the back 3 including captain Chris Jones in goal, Jim Gray and Kevin McNab were outstanding. Our bench boasted the riches of Adrian Mcgregor, Andrew Gibbons and Nick Beckett which meant we were always at full strength and a threat whoever was on the field.

In 6 tournament games we conceded a solitary goal and we secured a hard fought 2-1 final win against Newport County. Our opponents pushed us all the way and were ahead, but with cool heads and an equaliser from Mcgregor followed by a winner from M Jones we secured our first silverware.
