Soc­cer suc­cess for BGL Sixes play­ers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

FOOT­BALL fever kicked off re­cently at the BGL Group when staff from the com­pany’s Peter­bor­ough of­fices or­gan­ised a Soc­cer Sixes tour­na­ment to raise money for their cho­sen cor­po­rate char­ity, Marie Curie Can­cer Care.

Seven teams booted up at Bush­field Sports Cen­tre, in Or­ton Gold­hay, Peter­bor­ough, for the sec­ond an­nual tour­na­ment, rais­ing a su­perb £500 for the char­ity.

A nail-bit­ing fi­nal saw last year’s tour­na­ment win­ners and favourites IT take on Front­line, with ex­pe­ri­ence rul­ing the day as IT lifted the 2010 Cup with a re­sound­ing 4-1 win.

The team’s David Gar­cia made it a dou­ble for IT by also tak­ing the Player of the Tour­na­ment award.

Ni­cholas Tit­man of Fu­sion, BGL’s con­tact cen­tre op­er­a­tion in Peter­bor­ough, and tour­na­ment or­gan­iser, said: “We’d like to thank ev­ery­one who gave up their time to help out on a bril­liant day, in­clud­ing David Payne and Derek Ver­num from the Northamp­ton­shire FA, Vi­vac­ity for let­ting us use the sports cen­tre and Ni­cholas John As­so­ci­ates for run­ning the tour­na­ment.

“This was a great warmup for the World Cup with some ex­cel­lent foot­ball be­ing played for a ter­rific cause.

“A tour­na­ment high­light was an in­cred­i­ble si­mul­ta­ne­ous penalty on both pitches in the semi­fi­nal, both scored at ex­actly the same moment.”
