Notts Forest Mobsters

Nottingham Forest Mobsters return to the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens after missing both the 2016 and 2017 events, but have a strong track record in their previous involvements in the event in Happy Valley. Despite bringing a strong line-up that featured the likes of ex-England international defender Des Walker and fellow former Forest favourite Des Lyttle, the Mobsters failed to progress from their group with a fourth place finish following defeats at the hands of the HKFC Chairman’s Select and the Citi All Stars.

It was a disappointing return 12 months after reaching the semi-finals, having taken the scalp of the Citi All Stars in the last eight before falling to USRC in the penultimate round of the competition. That was the team’s second semi-final defeat having previously lost to Top Class in extra-time in the 2012 edition.

Nottingham Forest Mobsters have a track record of bringing strong squads and high profile names from within the club’s history to the event, with former England midfielder Neil Webb and two-time European Cup-winning captain John McGovern among those to have been part of the set-up to appear in Hong Kong over the years.
