BNI came out victorious, with the final score at 2-1.

Patryk Majewski from Capture House scored the best goal with a 'screamer' from behind the halfway line against Little Monsters House of Fun.

Jordan Bright, from Capture House, said: "This was the first time running this event and it was a huge success. Teams bought family and friends to cheer them on and it was a fantastic atmosphere. All of the teams have said how brilliant it was and are looking forward to entering next year."
