    Dyke win again! Congratulations to all in the Black Dyke football team that were victorious in a six-a-side tournament held in Leigh during half term. Other bands/colleges that entered teams included fodens, leyland, faireys and the RNCM. Fodens gave Dyke a run for their money coming back from 4-1 down to 4-3 and scoring two seconds after the final whistle! A great day out and good to see some banders getting some exercise!

    Actually, upon reflection Dykes victory has been deemed invalid as they fielded more than ONE non registered player in their team. Therefore, the victory was Fodens!!

    Sorry if this rule wasn't clear before kickoff.... I have just made it up!! lol
