THE ACCOUNTANCY AGE Football Fives tournament is coming up (hint, hint). Apropos of nothing, TS is happy to introduce the newest member of the AA editorial team.
His name is M. Henry (though you can call him Thierry), he is French, 33 years old and he will be temping with us on 13 May. Which, coincidentally, is the same date as the Football Fives. He is a cracking reporter, but apparently he has forged a career in sport, which will explain his lack of stories so far (and after 13 May).
Similarly hoping for success, this time in squash, are Ernst & Young, who sent out a press release celebrating their appearance in the semi finals of the ISS Canary Wharf & Square Mile Corporate Challenge, an event in which “City workers representing companies from a range of industry sectors have been battling it out a place in the grand final”.
PwC, E&Y’s semi final opponents, could be forgiven for a slight lack of confidence in the semi finals. E&Y are fielding employee Peter Marshall. Who just happens to be the former world number two.
Bobby, what is the French for foregone conclusion?
