It wasn't exactly Germany v Saudi Arabia when the Ark Royal XI beat the Manchester Bar Flies on Sunday afternoon in Ca'n Pastilla, but it wasn't too far off. A well drilled and extremely fit Ark Royal side eventually wore down the older and slower Bar Flies to win 4-1 (give or take a few goals). Controversy surrounded the match with some questionable decisions by the referee, who made Graham Poll look reputable, while the Bar Flies' goalkeeper, whose pre-match diet of beer had the desired effect, was hardly Peter Shilton. Despite the obvious gulf in quality, the score-line, and the fact that the Bar Flies had a ringer who plays for a well-known professional Scottish team, it was a tightly fought match and thoroughly enjoyable for the lively fans, who numbered well into double figures. Special thanks must go to Monroe Bryce and Darren from the Manchester Bar in Ca'n Pastilla for organising the match and to the Grup Serra for donating the Bar Flies' kit.
