Warren Cup a massive boost

SUPERB weekend weather contributed to the success of the Johnny Warren Memorial Cup, with a record 51 teams helping raise more than $10,000 for the Johnny Warren Foundation.

All three divisions were played in good spirit. Gerringong FC, King's Cross FC and the Sydney Brazilian Social Club Canarinhos were crowned Johnny Warren Memorial Cup Champions in the women's over-30s, men's over-35s and men's over-45's respectively.

The addition of the women's division was well received and is a reflection on the overall popularity of women's football in Australia and all around the world. Early indications are that the women's division registrations will double in 2015.

First-time participants Kings Cross FC, who came to the tournament looking for nothing more than a good weekend away, defeated the highly rated Jamberoo Pub 3-1 in the over-35s final.

Sydney Brazilian Social Club Canarinhos, after losing 1-0 to Kiama FC in their first game, ended up defending the Cup - a fitting finale to the Brazilian-themed event.

Event organisers thanked all of the people who volunteered their time and expertise to ensure the smooth operation of the event.
