The Martinborough Football Club held the P+K Marty Masters Se7ens on the 31 October, and it was a huge success. Thanks to all our amazingly generous sponsors; P+K Martinborough, Mitre10 Martinborough, Cool Change, The Claremont Hotel, Top10 Holiday Park Martinborough, Martinborough Vineyard,  Circus Cinema, Ata Rangi, HealthFit, Physio Spot, Dry River Winery, Olea Oil, Guscott Family, Neighbourhood Coffee, Tom Wilson Motors and the Martinborough Rugby Club. Also thanks to South Wairarapa District Council for their support.

Thank you also to the numerous volunteers that assisted on the day, and of course to the nine teams that entered.

The winning team was the Wharfies Dreamers (Capital Masters One), who after 3 years of trying, finally won the 2020 edition, going unbeaten on 22 points. Second place went to Wairarapa United (19), and third place to Waikanae (16). It was an extremely competitive tournament with the 8th placed team (Martinborough) drawing 1-1 with the 2nd placed team!

Please consider entering a team in 2021.  Contact at: martinboroughjuniorfc@gmail.com

Thanks again to all our generous supporters, it really is very much appreciated.
