With some of the biggies going out early in the game, and relatively unsung faces shining, it was Raghavendra that finally took the tourney down. We’re having some exceedingly brilliant action, and slowly but surely, the skill level in the tourney circuit is getting pushed up. The club is also growing by leaps and bounds, and we’re in the space to release a bunch of announcements in the next couple of weeks. The action is crazy, both on and off the stage, and we endeavor to make AndyzFC the place to be, the place to aspire to going forward!”
