Back of the net! mclcreate footballers take home the cup

Tuesday, 02 June 2015

The company team put on a fine footballing performance, winning the top prize in a Sponsors’ Day tournament at the Ricoh Arena.

Seeing off stiff competition from the likes of Carlsberg and Freeman, mclcreate sailed through the group stages and into the final.

The deciding clash put our boys in the ring with automotive giant Jaguar Land Rover, who did all they could to stop our advance.

In the end it was a showstopping goal by Mike Robinson that clinched it for mclcreate, bringing the tally to 1-0 at the final whistle.

Mike is the son of financial director Angela, and warehouse manager Neil, adding a fascinating family dimension to this company victory.

The team was managed by sales director Simon Jelley, and captained by Richard ‘Chopper’ Wathen, Exhibitions general manager.

Other players included a number of friends and relatives, including Matt Robinson, Ben Myall, Mike Wathen and Matthew Jelley.

Reflecting on the game, team manager Simon said:

“At the end of the day, it’s a game of two halves and the lads all gave 110%. We are over the moon with the result and send commiserations to the Jaguar team. They must be feeling as sick as a parrot."

Asked what the squad has lined up for the future, he said:

“Our boys are already looking forward to next year, but we are keeping our feet firmly on the ground and will take it one game at a time.”
