In a repeat of the 2008 final of the Iniscealtra Community Shield, Absolute FC met inaugural champions Jakko’s Bar in one of the tournament’s 2009 semi-finals. The tie ended in a draw and was decided by a penalty shoot-out. Much to the confusion of those watching on the sidelines, the referee instructed each team that they would initially have 4 penalty kicks each and each penalty kick must be struck from a standing position. i.e. no steps / run-up.

Emergency meeting – Mon 2 Nov 2009
Mixed Bag United is facing something of a crisis: too few people are coming on Mondays and we are losing money. Things are now critical, so an emergency meeting is planned for tomorrow following the game in Scariff to look for solutions. The venue will be Jakko’s at approximately 9.15pm. All welcome.
Result: Torry Tigers 6 – 3 Mixed Bag United
5 Sep 2009, Los Montesinos, Costa Blanca, Spain
Despite a promising start in which we responded immediately with an equaliser after the Torry Tigers opened the scoring on 5 minutes, Mixed Bag trailed 4-1 at half time and had to dig deep for a rugged fight-back during the second 45 minutes in the gruelling heat. At 4-3 the game was very much in the balance, but when the Torry Tigers made it 5-3, it left us too much to do.
Mixed Bag left the field with our heads high and were consoled with unbeaten runs in both pool and table football challenges against our hosts at the very enjoyable post-match refreshments in a local bar.
Pre match training
So lads, two more Grande and a vino tinto – kickoff isn’t till Saturday morning.
…and of course the boys are talking tactics.

The inaugural Iniscealtra Community Shield, a 5-a-side soccer tournament, took place in Scariff on Saturday 31st May as part of the2008 Iniscealtra Festival of Arts, whose theme this year was Community.
Fourteen teams played out a thoroughly enjoyable tournament in bright sunshine despite the thunderous storms affecting surrounding localities. Indeed the Scariff Fire Station team had to withdraw due to a lightning strike nearby! Over €800 was raised for the Clare Branch of the Samaritans – many thanks to their Director, Mary Lynch for attending the tournament to present the shield to the winners: Jakko’s Bar.
