People Source crowned business fives south west champions

People Source crowned business fives south west champions

A massive well done to Jack, Tomos, Matt W, Kris, Matt B, Noel, Rhymel and Dean for bringing home the Champions League trophy from the Business Fives South West tournament and securing a place in the national finals in Manchester. 

The Business Fives event offers a vessel for companies to support a charity and we picked Mind, the mental health charity. So far, the office has raised £590 for the charity plus an extra 10% donation from Business Fives for winning the tournament. This meant we were also named the event's top fundraiser. 

The tournament started with an initial group stage of 4 teams who all played each other. The top 2 of the group qualified for the “champions league”, which was another group stage of 4 teams and then went onto quarter finals against TechModal, Burgess Salmon in the semi-finals and Unite Students in the grand finals. 9 games in total with 9 wins for our boys. We must give a special mention to our very own Jack Williams who got the tournament's golden boot for a whopping 22 goals. Check out one of his sublime finishes here.

Matthew Williams, People Source Director and team captain said “We had a brilliant day and the event put on by Business Fives really was excellent, including the Q&A with Scott Murray and Louis Carey at the end which was hilarious. Every match and the whole event was played in great spirit amongst teams and we were chuffed to come out as eventual winners against some tough competition. We are now excited to compete in the National Finals in Manchester. The whole event raised over £2500 to local charities as well so with all things told it was a great day all round”

Cracking effort lads and good luck in the finals team! If you would like to donate to Mind, please visit our just giving page here
