In pictures: Subbuteo tournament returns to Maidenhead

Table-top football enthusiasts flocked to Maidenhead for the UK's biggest Subbuteo fair yesterday.

Collectors got the chance to get their hands on some merchandise in the morning as the WRVS Centre in York Road opened for a special March transfer window for plastic figures.

That was followed by the expanded, 32-team Maidenhead Anglo-Italian Cup in the afternoon.

Players from the UK and Italy battled it out for the prestigious Maidenhead Cup in the shadow of Maidenhead United's historic York Road ground.

The trophy was taken home this year by Oriano Micheletti from Scotland, who beat Italian defending champion Alessandro Brilli in the final.

Event organiser Jon Rosten said: "It was nice to see a British winner this time after three Italian winners.

"The tournament was good, but it was great to bring people together who share a love for the game."
