Marine Advertising Agency Football Tournament raises £1,000 for charity
Over 100 football players from across the marine industry turned out to take part in this year’s Marine Advertising Agency 5-a-side tournament, and together raised £1,000 for charity. The tournament takes place every year during PSP Southampton Boat Show.
As well as drawing together over 100 players from companies such as Peters & May, PSP, Magic Marine, National Boat Shows, Dean & Reddyhoff and Walcon Marine, this impressive sum was raised for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and G4 surgery at Southampton General Hospital.
A fun evening was had as marine industry teams played alongside staff teams from Southampton FC and PICU.
The tournament was won by the Matchtech 1 team (above) , which meant the Cup was kept by the technical recruitment agency for the fourth year running. National Boat Shows (below) took home the Plate trophy.
“There was a brilliant atmosphere at the 2014 MAA 5-a-side tournament,” said Mick Shepherd, Director of the Marine Advertising Agency. “It’s great to see new teams playing alongside those who’ve now become regulars. We’re delighted that so many people in the marine industry are keen to support such an important cause.”
The MAA 5-a-side, held in Goals in Southampton, is now a fixture of the Southampton Boat Show calendar. If you’re interested in taking part next year – keep the evening of 15th September free. Contact MAA to book your team in for the action!
