Does anyone remember any details from a pre-season four-team tournament that took place before the 1999/00 season?
I've managed to track down some information, but not all of it.

It was called the Kelvin Hughes Invitation Cup.
It took place at Ilford FC over the weekend of Sat 31 July and Sun 1 Aug.

Daggers beat Southend Utd Youth in the semi-final on penalties, after a 1-1 draw, on the Saturday.
Grays Athletic beat Ilford in the other semi-final.

So Daggers were due to play Grays Athletic in the final on the Sunday.
While Southend Utd Youth beat Ilford, in the 3rd place play-off.

Does anyone know the final result? or any other facts?
