BEING ever-so-slightly unfit I approached Accountancy Age's five-a-side tournament (sponsored by Robert Half) with trepidation. Rightly so, it turned out, as I departed the event with sore legs.
But in all seriousness, a great time was had by all. Frighteningly organised and fit teams from the likes of Macintyre Hudson, Frank Hirth, Haines Watts and the ICAEW, took part in the compo at T47 near London Bridge.
Accountancy Age's team lost in the semi-final for the 'plate' ie Loser's Cup, which was won by Robert Half.
But the top trophy, glory, medals etc went to BDO. Who, let's face it, if you play in pink you've got to be good.
Congrats to all, and thanks for coming along!
PS: Daren't not forget to mention our charity for the event - Kids Company.
