The Soret family takes over all the individual competitions at the British International Open. Bormla wins the team competition.

After intensive training just before the tournament in the fitness room and a visit to all the rooms of the complex, Remi Soret (FRA/Avenir Subbuteo Hennuyer) won the Yorkshire International Open against the surprising Mauro Camilleri (MLT/Bormla SC) after an exciting game. The very likeable Frenchman scored the winning goal during sudden death (3-2).

In the semi finals, Remi Soret beat one of the other tournament favorites, Chris Short (ENG/Elstow Lions TFC) 4-2, while Mauro Camilleri beat his brother Josef Camilleri (MLT/Bormla SC) with the same score.

In the youth categories, the organizer wanted to offer a maximum of matches to its participants and therefore composed a group of 7 players bringing together the U20s and the U16s.
At the end of this mini-championship, Louis Soret (FRA/Avenir Subbuteo Hennuyer) once again competed against the English lady hopeful, Ruby Matthews (ENG/Avenir Subbuteo Hennuyer).
These two sidekicks grow and progress together over the years.
The young smiling and talented Frenchman won the U20 final as well as the U16 final against the same Ruby Matthews.

In the team competition, it was the Maltese club Bormla SC, ranked 3rd in the world ranking, which was rewarded for its performances by beating the Elstow Lions TFC team in the final.
