Warbury fans call for Panzer to be sacked after fourth-place finish

Warbury finished the World League season with an uninspiring victory over Spartiates that confirmed a disappointing fourth-placed finish.

Fancied as favourites at the start of the campaign, a glut of draws once again proved costly as the Warriors' ageing squad struggled against younger and fitter opponents.

Only 5,672 turned up to watch them at Gasworks Road - and many of them were calling for manager Kurt Panzer to be sacked at the end of the game.

League newcomers Lima Incas lost 3-2 to Lagos, but the South Americans were already confirmed as this season's surprise champions.

Last season's champions Mombasa Mambas were runners-up with a thrilling 5-3 away win over Darwin Crocceroos.

Another World League debutant - St Louis United - finished a respectable third on goal difference to Mombasa after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Acapulco Aztecs.

Brecknock Dragons - managed by former Warbury assistant manager Dave Boreham - finished impressively in eighth place after a 2-1 win in Kampala.
