After a tight opening, Kirkcaldy went ahead midway through but the young Phantoms were soon level after Brendan Ward equalised.

Then with just a few minutes left on the clock Louie Kynaston got the game winner to send the supporters and players wild at the final buzzer.

Also competing at the tournament were the Phantoms Under 15 team and in an extremely competitive group they did well to defeat league champions Chelmsford twice to secure a fifth-place finish.
