Each year, the RN organised a six a side soccer competition which takes place at HMS Excellent in Portsmouth, with teams accommodated on the Type 82 Destroyer, HMS Bristol.

The Warwick teams had a very successful competition this year   with the Explorers winning the Plate, the Scouts coming away with 3rd place in the Cup; and the Explorers also winning a 3rd place in the penalty shoot out.

We entered squads in both the 12-14 age 'Scout' and 14 - 18 'Explorer' competition.  In both age categories teams first compete in a first round league competition.  The top two teams from each league go forward into the 'Cup' competitions.  The next two teams go into the 'Plate' competitions for the next round.. 

The second rounds are again played as leagues, but either within the Cup or Plate competitions.  The top two teams from this round go into the semi finals, and then the winners go through to the final.  There is a 3rd place match for the two losing semi finalists 

The teams and results were:-

Elaine, Holly S, Tom B (keeper), Tom O, Callum T, James F, Luke
