Benjis Win Jan van Burg Toernooi

winners

The Benjis juggernaut continues to roll-on… as they won their third consecutive tournament in as many weeks, at the Jan van Burg Toernooi at the Hooker’s home ground at Hoek van Holland.

For many of the Benjis squad, they were returning to the place where the journey began on an equally sunny day, two years ago as Turvens.

After breezing through the group stages, the Benjis won a tough semi-final against an impressive passing display by Gouda. In the final, the rapidly tiring Benjis defence stood firm to prevail 2-0 against DIOK.

speech

Captain Marval – Daniel collects the winning trophy!

The Benjis brilliant performance was only overshadowed by the stupidly of its own management team (cough, cough…), who thought it was a good idea to create a ‘man-of-the-match’ award only to be won by our female star… Leyla Meena, congratulations Princess Leyla, a great performance!

 

celebrate

The Kings & our Princess, celebrate their tournament winning performance. Talking of the King… Any chance their dancing to ‘Please Release me’ or ‘Jailhouse Rock’?

 

Layla

Champions!
