On May 23rd twelve of our team travelled to the King Power Stadium, home of Leicester City FC, to take part in a six -a -side football tournament involving 16 teams from across the Landscape Industry.
The aim of the tournament was to raise awareness of Perennial, the worthy charity that has been supporting everyone working in Horticulture and their families since 1839, by bringing together people from our industry to have fun, get to know each other and contribute towards the services provided by Perennial.
Whiting strolled through the competitive group stage but were gutted to be eliminated in the first knock out game after missing countless chances. Hitting the post 3 times and the crossbar 4, then missing two open goals, our lack of precision cost us dearly.
It was a brilliant day – apart from the outcome – but many Congratulations must go to the tournament winners Gavin Jones Ltd who finally lifted the trophy. Roll on next year lads!
