The IMPACT Anzac Day Cup Tournament was played yesterday at the Izumi Sports Village, with some terrific footy being played throughout the day. The Merged Team consisting of players from several JAFL sides the Tokyo Bay Suns, R246 Lions and the Senshu Powers took out the IMPACT Anzac Day with 3 victories. The Tokyo Goannas Football Club notched up 2 wins, whilst the Osaka Dingoes were unlucky not to pick up 2 wins, registering our only win against the eventual winners.
With four players over 40 years old, the Dingoes ran out of puff as the Tournament wore on, but the debut of 15 year old Yuta 大工利恵 were very promising! Post tournament 3 Votes to Club Legend Yoshihiro Imagawa, who was in scintillating form, singing of all AFL Club Songs!!!
Special mention and thank you - Brenton Burdett, whose company IMPACT Steel and Fabrication Maintenance is our major sponsor and financialy backed the event, and also to the The Blarney Stone Shinsaibashi, our proud sponsor for hosting the after party! Thanks also to Douglas Dear & Matt Wheelton for coming down from Sendai to play with the Dingoes. Everyone is looking forward to playing the Tohoku Bulls Football Club in Sendai later in the year!
