So this post is a little bit late. We’ve had a full week of ice-baths and sports massage in our come-down from theBristol Media Football Tournament and now
feel ready to share how it all went with the wider world.
First up, we were the best dressed team there (save for Alex’s shoelace around his head and his long shorts/short trousers) Awesome Team Rubber shirts in Black and Gold complemented by some pimp neon pink and black socks certainly set the tone as we assembled for some pre-tournament hacking of the ball at our new keeper, Bunny (it turns out his name was Button)
Into the group stages we drew the first game against a suspiciously young team before sweeping aside all those before us to top our group. Goals came thick and fast in most games and Ben Whitnall did a great job of giving us shape and shouts throughout the tournament that let us play some brilliant football.
The knock-out stages drew us against the eventual winners, Smith & Williamson- we went 1-nil up but then some sloppy marking saw them sneak in the equaliser to take the game to penalties. Like all great English teams we fluffed up on penalties and our day in the sun was over. S&W (a law firm) went on to win the final on penalties- congrats to them.
The Team Rubber Team were: Owen, Alex, Ben T, Ian, Ally, Kirk, Button & Ben W as gaffer.
I’ve looked long and hard and then best 2 pictures are below. Oh, and one more thing, if you’re good at football and want a job then we’re recruiting for an Account Director with a strong left foot.
