Whilst the football world’s attention is on Russia right now, sneaking in just ahead of the big kick-off in Moscow, was Driver Hire’s own football tournament. However, rather than Volgograd, this one was played out in Tamworth.
Organised by Driver Hire’s Gatwick office team, along with 90 minutes of non-stop goalmouth action, the aim of the day was to raise money for Driver Hire’s Benevolent Fund. It undoubtedly scored in both departments, serving up 13 goals and raising just shy of £3,000 for an excellent cause.
The match pitched a Driver Hire XI, consisting of players from around Driver Hire’s nationwide network against a Driver Hire Group Services/Paystream squad. The latter is one of Driver Hire’s key service suppliers.
As promised there were goals galore with the Driver Hire XI running out winners by 9 goals to 4. There was then a penalty shootout contested by players and spectators. The winner collected a Kindle Fire for achieving what England regularly fail to do in international competition.
