On  17 December 2010 the second edition of VAS Cup was played at the Thang Long Astroturf Pitch, VAS Hanoi. This year’s participants were Year 11 and Year 10. The game was 7-a-side played over four quarters of ten minutes.

Hoang ’Baby’ Nam led his Year 10 team to victory with three decisive goals and two points capping off a great year for him personally in which he picked up a winners ‘medal in the All-Vietnam Schools Cup and two ‘Man of the Match’ awards during the sporting season.

However the ‘Man of the Match’ award this time out went to the Year 11 Captain, Mai Viet Anh with some fantastic link play between defense and attack from his midfield position. There will be an awards ceremony in March.

Thanks to ‘Big’ Jon Holden (photo-above) who helped out with the refereeing plus organising and Brenda Meiklejohn who went on a recruiting drive in the days prior to the cup.
