Thank you everyone!
So that was the Copenhagen Celtic Summer Tournament 2017.Congratulations to Copenhagen Vikings who walked away with the Celtic Cup after they defeated Denmark in the Final 2-0. We look forward to welcoming you back next year where you can defend your title.
On behalf of the Copenhagen Celtic Committee, I'd like to take this opportunity to say a few thank yous. Firstly a big thank you to the early bird crew who arrived at 07:00hrs to help set things up. To have 10 guys ready to help early on a Saturday morning was amazing and we are all so grateful for your efforts and willingness to get stuck in. Secondly, thank you to all the team managers. Without you guys mobilising your troops and encouraging players to sign up we wouldn't have a tournament. Your work is a major, major help.
A special thank you to all the external teams that either returned again this year or agreed to play for the first time. Having you guys adds an extra element to the tournament and we hope to see you again in the coming years.
Tartan Army! You boys got stuck into the spirit of things from the off. Rocking up dressed in kilts with a bottles of booze tucked under your arms and dancing around like crazy men is precisely the type of guys we are looking for. Come back anytime!
A huge thank you to Kløvermarken Cafe for once again agreeing to host the club. There's not many guys with the patience and hospitality skills like you Mikkel. You are a true gent. Thank you.
Thank you to Scotsman A/S for providing the ice. We promise we put it to good use, although next year I think the winning manager should have the contents of one poured over his/her head.
To the Dusk til Dawn Street Food guys, you boys cook some mean and tasty burgers. I heard people were going back for seconds. What's the recipe???
Thank you to Pete Denham and Gus (Dubliner) for arranging and looking after the bouncy castle for the children.
Thank you to Simon Sheard for going the extra mile to arrange the tables and benches. They just made things look that little bit more organised and professional.
Thank you to Gabriel Miranda for all your media work on the day. I'm sorry I wasn't around to welcome you in person, but I had a wedding to go to in the afternoon. I owe you a beer and I'm really looking forward to seeing the photos and we'll publish them here soon.
Finally, thank you to everybody that came along to support the event on the day. It was fantastic to see so many past, present and future faces of the club. The club is always looking for new players, so if there are any of you who would like to pull on a Copenhagen Celtic shirt and join one of our teams, then please get in touch
See you all at next years event! We'll be releasing details soon.
