One thought on “The Great Yorkshire Showdown

  1. I was at the tournament, and can i just say how awesome it was. All the teams showed what derby is all about and it was a credit to the sport as a whole. Worthy winners in the end were the Middlesboro Milk Rollers, but overall an amazing day, and I certainly look forward to next years tournament!
