Back of the Net!

eskimosoup’s marketing team have continued a run of good form by celebrating the success of the inaugural Business Week 6-aside Football Cup.

Sponsored by the generous community champions; St Stephen's Shopping Centre, the cup took place at the outdoor pitches of the Bonus Arena, Hull on the evening of Wednesday 8th June. 20 teams took part as four mini leagues were whittled down to a knock-out tournament.

IT support company Primary Tech beat Humber Sports Partnership 2-1 in a gripping final to clinch the title, though went on to be beaten 5-2 in an exhibition by the Hull City Legends team, including two goals from eskimosoup’s very own Rich Quelch who somehow managed to sneak into the line-up somewhere between Stan McEwan and Stuart Elliott!

The event raised £2,875.00 for the Hull Children’s University and plans are being drawn up for a bigger tournament in 2012 – as they say; watch this space…

In the meantime a video showing many of the highlights (including a Rich Quelch goal and a successful cross-bar challenger) can be viewed here.
