ST ALBANS City Youth Disability returned triumphant from their first overseas trip to the Schiebroek '94 football tournament held in Rotterdam on April 30 and May 1.
A strong City team dominated their Dutch opponents Schiebroek '94, Vredenbruch and Capelle Zwervers winning five games and drawing one without conceding a goal.
Leading scorers Rob Drew (seven goals) and Anthony Roche (six goals) led the way with City scoring a total of 17 goals in the tournament.
All the City squad contributed to the success but a special mention goes to Toby Smith whose hard work and unselfish team play earned him City's player of the tournament.
