The Group Stages were unforgiving this year and with the exception of the shock exit of the multiple previous winners "The Bhoys", the final four were indeed the four best teams.Last year's finalists "Phoenix Youth" and "Richbert fc" could not be separated in a tense but high quality game with Richbert ultimately coming out on top by way of penalties. Similarly in the other semifinal the young legs of "Whippy Wanderers" were up against the experienced veterans of the "Oldcourt All-stars" who looked to have secured their place in the final until a last gasp equalizer sent the game to penalties where "Whippy Wanderers" earned the right to face holders "Richbert fc" in the final. In a very close final "Richbert fc" converted their chances and managed to retain their title with a 2-0 victory.
