Inter-Anglian Cup Raises £260 for Sport Relief

29th May 2015

Anglian Home Improvements have held their second Inter-Anglian Cup, this year with four teams of Anglian employees taking part. The Inter-Anglian Cup saw 4 teams made up of employees in the Norwich area, forming teams with their departmental colleagues to raise money for Sport Relief.

This was no ordinary tournament though as the staff got to play at Colney, Norwich City’s training ground, in a full 90 minute match in the semi-finals, before going on to play the final and 3rd place final in a 50 minute match at Carrow Road.

The first semi-final saw the team made up of mostly Factory workers take on the Transport department. It was an entertaining game of football and saw some very good goals scored, with the Factory team coming out on top, winning 14-4.

The second semi-final was the Marketing/Call Centre team against the Finance/Procurement team. It was a close game and saw slick passing from both teams along with some incredible long range goals. The final score was Marketing/Call Centre 8-3 Finance and Procurement.

This set up the 3rd place final between Transport and Finance/Procurement, and the final between Marketing/Call Centre against the Factory team on the big stage that is Carrow Road.

The 3rd place final was played first and it was a tight game with really good build up play from both teams, but a couple of mistakes lead to goals for the Transport team. They managed to earn themselves a 4-1 win and finished 3rd.

The final was another close game with some superb goals scored, fantastic goalkeeping and both teams competing in great spirit. At full time neither team had managed to break the deadlock and it ended a 2-2 draw sending the game to sudden death penalties.

It was a high pressure situation at the Barclay End, but it was the Marketing/Call Centre team who were crowned champions in an exciting penalty shoot-out.

Thanks to everyone who got involved, it’s a great amount of money raised for Sport Relief and look forward to next year’s Inter-Anglian Cup.
