The inaugural British Football School Rosinka Cup took place on June 27th as the Rosinka Sports Centre played host to teams from the west of Moscow. This community event saw both boys and girls between the ages of 5-13 play a whole day of football and also raised money for a Mitino Detskiy Dom through the charity FlagDobra.ru

Five British Football School teams were in action. BFC City, BFC Athletic, BFC Rovers, and then British Football Club’s two newest team – BFC Vixens and BFC Union – who were both playing their in their first matches together. They were playing against three ISM Rosinka teams (the Wolves, Coyotes and Bears).

The day started with heavy rain so the decision was taken to play all matches at the Indoor tennis centre.  Tournament organiser Richard Peers from British Football School said, “it was a small but exciting tournament to be involved with. The play was fast paced and the supportive parents saw many good individual and team performances. They were treated to not only many goals but competitive football that was played in a fun and fair manner. A special mention should go to the girls only team BFC Vixens, who despite this being their first competitive football experience (and especially playing against the boys!!), managed to secure a win against the boys!

The tournament winners included:
Division 1 – ISM Bulldogs and BFC City (joint winners)
Division 2 – BFC Athletic
Division 3 – ISM Bears

The trophies were handed to the team captans and medals given to all players who participated at a small ceremony inside the Rosinka restaurant, where they were also treated to free pizza! The trophies will be engraved and displayed in the Rosinka Sports Centre until the next Rosinka Cup.

The tournament finished with a small match between the BFS coaches and parents and Rosinka football player and parents. The match was a close one and cheered on by over 100 supporters who braved the rain the Rosinka players won 5-4!
