Last weekend’s six-a-side football tournament held by Recycling Lives at Preston College ended with a victory for the company’s predominantly Hungarian team, Storm Corner!
Named after the weather in the area in Hungary where most of the players originate, Storm Corner romped to victory against second-place Allied, The Preston Stars, The Letdowns, The White Collar Warriors, Charity Villa and “Inter Mivan”.
The winning team battled it out in a series of 15-minute games to grab the top prize of £80. The meteorological conditions in their homeland have been cited by the other teams as an explanation of why they did so well in the terrible weather over the weekend but Operations and Training Manager Neil Flanagan was on hand as ever to make sure that there was no monkey business going on, so it seems that all’s fair in love and footy!
Despite the near constant rain, the event was a huge success – Preston College generously donated the use of the pitch for free and several of the teams went as far as designing and wearing their own team strip. And, for a bit of comic relief at the end of the tournament, the charity mini bus decided to give up the ghost, waiting until some of the shattered lads could give it a shove down the road before coughing back into life!
With a re-match already planned for the summer, there’s bound to be lots of training going on, and perhaps even a couple of transfer requests on the cards…
But, for now, all that’s left to say is “A jól végzett!” to all the lads on Storm Corner: Tamas Racz, Pal Lauriluyec, Janois Pribojszki, Laszlo Borbiro, Janos Jakab, Attila Onodi, Krzysztof Wozniewski.
