The biggest football event in Scotland this week took place in Glasgow and featured flying elbows, flared tempers, diving tackles, loud booing from a section of the support and a dodgy referee. No, it wasn’t the Scotland v England friendly international – it was the @jthomsoncolourprinters inter-departmental 5-a-side tournament, kindly sponsored by Elliot Baxter.
After 2 hours of combat, on a stiflingly hot afternoon the oldest team in the tournament, by some distance, emerged victorious. Congratulations to the winners, Bryan Reid, Peter Shepard, Graham Watson, Martin Coyle and Kevin Creechan – the Customer Service Team – who showed the younger teams a thing or two about football, no doubt helped by the fact that they wore green and white strips according to @kevincreechan
A big thanks to everyone who turned up on the day, whether watching or playing, to Elliot Baxter for their support and to Brodies Bar for hosting the very liquid after party. 🏆⚽🍺
