The crew of the Kelso and de Hong joined us on the island on Tuesday for a soccer game against the island team. The de Hong is a tug from Singapore which is part of the salvage operation to remove the rig from Tripot Bay where is got ‘shipwrecked’ in May/June 2006.
The islanders played a great game and won the match convincingly with a score of 10:5.
We had great fun cheering our team on, and admiring the view from the soccer pitch – where else in the world can you play soccer on a pitch with a sea view? Caitlin enjoyed her first ‘footie’ match too, although she did sleep through most of the proceedings!
And, as with some of the bigger clubs in the UK, the visitor’s team was made up of a truly international group of people with visitors from the UK, South Africa and United States to mention just a few!
Below is a picture of all the players:
Have a super weekend all!
