On Wednesday night 29 May 2024 a number DBers that were involved in the Ampcontrol DB team sevens tournament (players, coaches and sponsors) got together at “The Chippy” to have a beer and fish supper.
Craig Barnett (“The Chippy” owner) was a secondary sponsor of this year’s Soccer Sevens team, as he was last year, and agreed to host this team “debrief” gathering. A great night was had with excellent food and drink, having a good laugh recalling many funny episodes and events over the tournament 4 days and contemplating how we need to fine tune our team preparation for next year’s event, so that we take the highest honour of winning the Masters’ Cup, as we did in 2018. The attached group photo outside “The Chippy” has Craig holding the Masters’ Plate and either side of Craig is Lippmann Lee (main sponsor Ampcontrol) and Matija Maretic (secondary Sponsor Marvelsoft). Left to right: Tim Bredbury, Gary Rollinson, Matija Maretic, Craig Barnett, Lippmann Lee, Nigel Ballie, Nik Light and Oli Rendall. The other two DB lads that sponsored the team and popped by early evening but couldn’t stay for the photo shoot were Rafael Lopez (606) and Tim Drew (Tanner De Witt).
