Club olympus are very pleased to support the International Soccer Sevens Tournament again here in Tenerife.
The tournament begins on Friday evening (19th November) in Adeje and continues on Saturday and Sunday. It's an 'over 30's' competition with teams from the UK, Spain and Tenerife. Many of the players are ex-pro's and CD Tenerife are sending a veterans team to compete.
Pictured above are Ivan and Tony of Club Olympus with the Carlsberg All-Stars, winners of last years tournament. Some notable names in that team were Ally Mauchlen (Leicester and Celtic), Naim (Spurs) and Nicky Summerbee (Man City).
This year Club Olympus have their own team made up of ex-professional players called the "Club Olympus Select" although we should really call them The Club Olympus Scottish Select!
The team features such great names as Darren Jackson (Celtic and Scotland), Tommy Johnson (Derby, Celtic and England), Dave McPherson (Rangers and Scotland), Bobby Russell (Rangers and Scotland), John McDonald (Rangers and Scotland), Dave Bowman (Dundee United and Scotland) and Marcus Gayle (Wimbledon).
The event is organised by Martin Tierney of Soccer Experience pictured below (Photo courtesy of 'Island Connections' Newspaper)
