From the convenor…

J.J. Grubisic — I would like to congratulate to the volunteers that helped make this tournament happen:

Scheduling — Frank Perin and Ivan Rados
Referees — Mike Radencic and Ante Culina

Thanks to all of the teams that participated (NK Bauštelac did not). The only club that can put a full-on Christmas tournament together with all of the players being members of the same club is Hamilton Croatia.

Nice to see some legends (Frank Sudac, Hamilton; and Mile Sesar, London, Windsor and Cleveland) making guest appearances on the field as well.

Lastly, it was great having other teams watching from the field level, as well as the support in the stands, notably NK ZAP’s fans. Hopefully we can make this Christmas Tournament an annual occurrence!
