Jaguar Land Rover Interdepartmental Charity Shield 2013

Posted by: Tom Webb-Skinner 14 Oct 13 - 10:30AM  | Recruitment

Jonathan Lee Recruitment proudly sponsored the Jaguar Landrover 2013 Interdepartmental Charity Shield for the third time on Friday 11th October.

Sixteen teams entered including one from Jonathan Lee Recruitment for this European Championship styled 5-a-side tournament. Our team were drawn representing Turkey with our colleagues Gareth Simpson, David Powers, Les Hines and Neil Cayley representing us along with some help from a few unofficial Jonathan Lee Recruitment employees (hint: they still work for a 'JLR').

At times the quality of our football was scintillating, we started with a fine win in our first game against the Czech Republic. With a fine save from keeper Gareth and cracking goals from Les and David we were off to a great start. Onto our second game where we conceded a penalty against Denmark having led in that game and conceded late goals to, alas, lose a game we might have won. We had to win our final Group game to progress and manfully set about the task but, despite some heroic defending and a coolly taken penalty from Neil, we could not stem the tide and were eventually beaten!

Germany who were favourites (no change there then) made it to the final to play our nemesis Denmark who actually went on to win comfortably!

The presentations of a variety of trophies, inlcuding Winning Team, Golden Boot, Player of the Tournament and so on, were made by Dave Jones (Finance Manager at Jaguar Landrover) and Tony Street (Account Manager at Jonathan Lee Recruitment). As usual the event was very well organised by Dave Jones and his fantastic team and we look forward to the fourth year of more of the same in 2014!
