On Saturday the 24th of July, Goals Soccer Centre in Leeds played host to this years annual event of the 5–a side football tournament. Only one team could claim the cup and this year it was the boys from A. Algeo Ltd who fought off the competition to claim victory.
There were some debutants who made an appearance at this year’s event from Sefton PCT – and after having had a taste for the competition they may have to consider training earlier next year for a chance at the trophy! MAG, Canonbury Products, RSL Steeper and Opcare also provided the tournament with teams and each did their companies proud with some fine displays on the pitch.
Due to a couple of last minute team withdrawals a league system was used this year to decide on the winning team. The teams went head to head in competitive matches confirming that everyone was out to claim the title, however it was the lads from Algeos who triumphed this year having won 5 matches and drawing 1.
The event drew to a close with the teams cooling off with a few beers and the winning team being presented with their 4th cup in 7 years.
Orthotictechnicians.com and Algeos would like to thank all this year’s participants for attending and making the event a great success, with a special thanks to John Shawcross at Timpsons for kindly donating the trophy this year. The tournament was played well with a level of talent and enthusiasm for the game and as always with great deal of camaraderie.
Hope to see you all again next year!
