RUNNERS-UP   IN   AMSTERDAM

During the Whitsun week-end an almost identical party to the squad that competed in the Washington International Soccer Festival visited Amsterdam to participate in a twelve-team Tournament. Bill Lansdowne and Wally St. Pier were the officials, with Dave Gladstone as physiotherapist: Dick Arnold, a Youth Section official, also made the trip to be with his "protegees."

 

The results of our preliminary group matches were :

Feyenoord (Netherlands) 1-1 Ayris, DWS Amsterdam (Netherlands) 1-0 Coker, Aalborg (Denmark) 1-0 Fulton (pen), Ajax (Netherlands) 2-1 Durrell (2) and Bristol City 1-1 Coker.

Our best performances in these matches was against Ajax, for we were one down early on to the Dutch club, but fought back to victory through Joe Durrell's two goals. The Final against Leicester City was disappointing, and a single goal brought us defeat when we had every hope of ending as winners.
