OK guys I have photos on my facebook, http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/profile.php?id=712657151 more than welcome to add me. The photos will be under R3PLAY hope you enjoy them.

Thanks to all players who took part and congratualtions to Lobo.

I used Brazil because its the decant team in swos and I wanted to make it fair as possible. Players were asking me before kick off if they could have a pratice, I had to say no as it wouldnt be fair on other players and it would take up more time. I my self never played the game against another human since I didnt have time, I wanted to take part but it would have been more work load for my self.

If it was an all day tournament then yes I would have taken part. I am happy that I got 32 players and I wish that Codemasters was there to see it for them selfs so they can think again about making a proper swos and that swos is not dead. Having said that Codemasters donated 2 T-shirts and Jon offered to sign them, R3PLAY provided the trophy, they told me it would be small but at the end of the day I dont think Lobo couldnt care less about the size of the trophy as his dream came true by having a game with Jon hare and beating him.

I am very proud of my self that I manage to hold such tournament and as someone pointed out its the first off its kind here in the UK. If and thats a big IF I might do it again next year, it will depend if I get enough help and hardware.

PS

Jon Hare has played on my amiga as we used it on the final game hehe!

Phew Lobo...what a great report...and even greater pics.

I think I don't need to say that I'm extremely jealous ;D

Well, maybe next year my dream will come true...beat Lobo in Final and then meet Jon Hare on the pitch ;D

Thanks for sharing your experience and pics, m8. Much appreciated ;)

Brilliant, wish I'd been there. Was Jon any good at playing Lobo? Regarding the 0-6 he could be at the same level as me ;)

I'd never beat you 6-0 Pol vs Eng ;). Jon hasn't touched SWOS in years so he seemed quite rusty.
