DISABLED Futsal teams from across Europe descended on Gibraltar for the annual Gareth Cowin Memorial Football Tournament.

The Special Olympics Gibraltar team triumphed in front of their home fans in a hard-fought final against Warrington at Victoria Stadium.

The Gareth Cowin Memorial Football Tournament is held annually in remembrance of Isle of Man Special Olympic athlete Gareth Cowin who tragically passed away while competing in the Special Olympic World Winter Games in South Korea in 2013.

Despite several outfits being unable to make the competition due to the collapse of Monarch Airlines, teams from the Isle of Man, Warrington and Algeciras took part.

Gareth was well-known in Gibraltar as he visited the Rock several times to compete in the National Games.
