The annual event was held on Saturday in North London, with a record 26 teams competing. Player of the tournament was Paul Abraham of Informa, while his team mate Tom Walling took away the Golden Boot with 18 goals. A full tournament write-up and photographs will be published in The Bookseller later this week.
