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!
