The first annual company football match was held on Thursday 9th May at Hastings United Football Club.
The Hastings Head Office took on our Upminster Office and employees from both offices came down to cheer them on!
Despite a strong start by the Hastings office, Upminster scored on the break and sailed into a 5-2 half-time lead, with Luke Freeman scoring a hat-trick. A close fought second half resulted in a final score of 6-2 and Tom McCarthy being awarded Man of the Match.
It was a fantastic effort from all and despite the rain it was a brilliant evening. Everyone is already looking forward to next year’s rematch which we plan to hold at Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium as part of our Summer Party celebrations.
A big thanks goes to Hastings United FC for allowing us to use the ground, particularly Hayley Clout, HUFC Commercial Manager, for organising it all for us.
