There was high drama at the climax of the Medway Business Games five-a-side football tournament last week. Kent Reliance Building Society clinched the title ahead of Henry Schein in sudden death in a nail-biting penalty shoot out. The tournament was held at Medway’s new Kicks Soccer Centre on Friday, 29 February and featured 11 teams from local organisations and businesses. The teams played throughout the afternoon, battling both each other and the elements. The final positions were as follows: 1. Kent Reliance Building Society 2. Henry Schein 3. Medway Police 4. Furley Page 5. Strood Sports Centre 6. MHS Homes 7. Medway Messenger 8. HSBC 9. Medway Council 10. Canterbury Young Professionals/Strutt and Parker 11. Lloyds TSB The event was support by Gillingham FC, whose captain Andrew Crofts made the presentations. The winning team will also enjoy a VIP day at Priestfield. The Player of the Tournament award went to Matt Parson from Henry Schein, who received a signed Gills shirt and a Watch, Wine and Dine package at Priestfield. Every participating player also received seven-day Medway Leisure pass. The football was the first of five sports tournaments making up the Medway Business Games programme for 2008. The positions in Friday’s tournament will count towards the company’s overall position in the Games league table. The next tournament is badminton and takes place from 2pm to 6pm on Wednesday, 19 March at Medway Badminton Association’s Castlemaine Hall in Gillingham.
