E THOMAS Construction erased the memory of their final defeat last season to be crowned Nantuckett News Carn Brea Five-a-side League champions for 2003/4 with a convincing 5-0 victory over Redruth United who were the surprise package of the night.

With the evening containing a mixture of good football , some unacceptable discipline combined with controversial refereeing (as usual!), rounded off with a lifetime achievement presentation to Steve Webber following 30 years of continual play within the league, and a splendid buffet provided by Emma Agnew, everyone had something to talk about .

Bike Chain could only field three players due to a clash with a full Jolly's Combination League programme and despite trying to get their games delayed, were thumped 8-0 by Richfords

Penmarth won a hard match against Carn Marth 4-2. Thursday league winners Speedy Hire were shocked to lose 2-0 to a hard working Redruth United. Steve James ( Jammy D) was delighted to reach finals night at last, so was not too despondent at losing 3-0 to the eventual winners.

The semi-finals continued to provide Redruth with another unexpected 2-1 win over Richfords.

Penmarth felt that some strange refereeing decisions went against them during the 5-0 loss to E. Thomas, who repeated that score in the final.

It brought to a conclusion the 30th anniversary of the popular competition and with it a special presentation to Steve Webber who is the only player to have taken part in all 30 league campaigns. He received a special presentation of an engrabed glass football at the awards ceremony from the league chairman Mr Graham Tippett and the league secretary Mr David James.
