There was the legendary Liverpool FC in Istanbul in 2005 and earlier this month there was Liverpool v Dortmund, but a comeback for the Health Informatics team is well up there with the great comebacks in footie history..... ish!

 

They clinched the trophy at the annual Leeds NHS 5-a-side at Powerleague Leeds Central last Friday night. The £10 per team always goes to charity.

 

The team launched a stunning recovery to come back from two down virtually from kick-off to win it with three goals in three minutes in extra time.

 

Proud coach Julian Bates, said: "They looked beaten but there was a remarkable showing of resilience and working together to get results to enable a famous, long to be remembered victory. We were highly delighted to have performed well on such a big stage."

 

Having previously won back in 2012 they were eager to get their hands on the coveted trophy once again. They played a total of five games and managed to win every one.

 

Julian added: "For keeping a cool head when they were looking at defeat Mark Butterfield was a star. But then they all were!

 

They are looking to defend their title next year too.
