The SW Branch of The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity organised an inaugural Football Tournament on Friday 21st September 2018 at Goals in Plymouth.
6 teams took part; Galliford Try Partnerships, Morgan Sindall, Shield Environmental, Classic Builders, Midas Construction and event sponsor Sphere Solutions.
It was a hotly contested event where some friendly work rivalry got heated at times, but after a gruelling 5 games each of 5-a-side there were 3 teams joint top with only goal difference to separate them. The overall winners were Galliford Try Partnerships with Shield Environmental as Runners Up and event sponsors Sphere Solutions picking up the wooden spoon.
Rob Bennett, Treasurer of the SW Branch of the charity and Area Director of Sphere Solutions said “A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon of mixed level football. Everyone enjoyed the event, the venue was perfect and looked after us with excellent service and food. Whilst there was some strong tackles and plenty of banter, everyone enjoyed a beer afterwards and a few laughs. We would like to thank all the teams that made the event a success and their respective management teams for releasing their staff in work time. We raised nearly a £1000 and hope to run the event in spring or summer 2019”.
