The pick of the Pub Cup posts

From the brilliant to the bizarre, here are some hits from our tournament Twitter feed

The BT Sport Pub Cup has taken us around the country and provided plenty of material for the highlights reel. Here’s some of the action from this year’s tournament…

1. The Players

With more than 190 teams taking part this year, thousands of players had the chance to step out at pro stadiums. Not that everyone seemed to know where they were supposed to be…

2. The management

Players can thrive off passion from the sidelines. Our Wolverhampton champs, The Wrekin View, show what it means.

3. The fans

And it always helps to have a little support coming from the stands as well…

4. The goals

We witnessed some crackers up and down the land. This one took the Hole in the Wall, Armagh, through to the semi-finals in Manchester.

5. And another!

The Inn at Elderslie made it all the way to the final – helped along the way by goal-busting strikes like this.

6. The misses

But this is pub football, so not everyone was quite as hot in front of goal.

7. The penalty shoot outs

We had them at heats all over the country but perhaps the most dramatic came in the semi-finals at Manchester when The Golden Hind knocked out The Wheatsheaf.

8. The saves

There were some fantastic stops and, like this, some that were a little more unconventional.

9. The walkouts

Every Pub Cup team got to experience the walk from the tunnel to the pitch. Here they are at Anfield, with hope in their hearts.

10. The licensees

It’s always great when the pub guvnor joins the team for the day. We caught up with a few in front of the bar…

11. The stars of the future

And we met plenty of players (and punters) of the future too

12. The stars of today

Our pundits were on hand at the semis and finals to provide great tips and advice. Here’s Rachel Brown-Finnis getting Shifnal’s number one ready for the final

13. The stars of today (part 2)

And here’s what happens when you try to conduct a pitch-side interview with Robbie Savage nearby…

14. Jeff Brazier Appreciation Society

On the subject of talent, let’s take a moment to enjoy presenter Jeff Brazier casually showing his juggling skills…

15. The stadiums

One of the joys of the Pub Cup is getting to play at, or just visit, some of the greatest grounds in the land. Playing at the home of the champions of England made the semi-finals a special day for many.

16. The trophy

This is what they all wanted to get their hands on. Clearly Adam Green, the captain of men’s champions CJ’s became rather attached to the Pub Cup…

17. That winning feeling

Who doesn’t love a good trophy lift? Our first ever women’s champs, Shifnal Town Sports Bar, show how it’s done.
