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.
