Inverclyde Bowl

Super Inverclyde Bowl




To the shock of many, considering the recent weather, the Inverclyde Bowl was played in bright sunshine on Saturday at the Battery Park. The Clyde Valley Falcons, Edinburgh Wolves and Highland Wildcats all commented on the wonderful location for the tournament, hosted by the Inverclyde Phoenix and six games of fast paced, hard hitting American football thrilled the spectators. The result saw the Clyde Valley Falcons crowned the Scottish Champions for 2009.  They now go on to represent Scotland in the National Finals in September at Doncaster with the Glasgow Tigers.

The hosts, Inverclyde Phoenix came second on the day beating the Wolves and Wildcats comfortably while losing in a tough game against the Falcons. Phoenix game MVP’s(Most Valuable Players) were Stewart Keenan and Fabio Marturano though it has to be said they could have gone to any of the Phoenix players. David Nisbet played in his first game at quarterback and proved that he has what it takes. The defence as ever were rock solid behind Nose Tackle Jonny Gallagher and hard hitting linebacker Mick Delaney.


Trophy presentations were performed by Jon Peberdy of Phoenix main sponsors Fraoch Ltd whom the team would like to thank for all his support. The Phoenix would also like to thank Sportsmatch, Awards For All, Inverclyde Council, Riverside Inverclyde/Peel, and the VAF.


The Phoenix now look forward to the 11 man season and are actively recruiting. Please check out our website www.inverclydephoenix.com or phone 07905858577
