30-Jun-12 They think it’s all over, it is now!

Today was the annual SThree football tournament and this year’s event was keenly contested at Powerleague at Wembley.

With 9 eager teams formed by most of the London offices, it was always going to be challenging.

I had high hopes this year, as I felt our squad of 8 could compete if we could ease our way in and not give the ball away cheaply!

As we now make our way home, we have had our best tournament ever being beat on penalties (3-2) in the final by a team from our Computer Futures London office.

It’s been the first tournament that I did not kick a ball, as my job was to manage them through. To be honest, this was extremely easy, as the team, unbeaten all day should be very proud of what they achieved, as each individual performed above expectations.

So our team, aptly named 1966 All Stars, under the shadow of the Wembley stadium has followed the England tradition and again failed to win on penalties, but we move forward with high expectations for next year!

On the final stage of the journey home now from Waterloo with Murray shortly on centre court at Wimbledon with Baghdatis. With the Nadal upset earlier this week, the draw is now starting to look very favourable for our British survivor, so let’s hope he can avoid stage fright over the next 7 days!
