On Monday 12th December 2011 Active8 Sheffield saw off the wet and windy conditions to host their first ever Corporate 6-a-side football tournament. The event took place at King Edwards Sports Centre and was a resounding success due to all teams that took part competing fantastically well!
Darren Roberts captained his Jack-in-a-box side to victory without losing a game and only conceding one goal throughout the whole tournament. They saw off Ross Brown’s Sheffield Hallam University outfit with a 1-0 win in the final under the floodlights courtesy of a goal from tournament leading goalscorer Jamie Roper.
Other teams that took part included James Taylor’s Sheffield University Officer Training Corps, John Champion’s Electrical Services, Gregg Lant’s Morrisons Side and Andrew Leonard’s Premier Sport guys.
Special Thanks go out to everyone who entered a team and took part in our event. A final Thank You also goes to Joe Mullen who gave up his own time to help us officiate the event, we couldn’t have done it without you all!
Active8 would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. We look forward to many more events to come!
