Wednesday 20th November saw 12 teams battle it out in the Morelli 5-a-Side Cup where staff and customers played out a great tournament played in fantastic spirit with some cracking football on show with a number of fetching moustaches too!
Mercedes Liverpool, Proximo and VRVE set the early pace with victories to nil, a number of games then followed with a couple of goals being the difference and with Mercedes and VRVE safe into the quarters they both finished with a draw reserving the real stuff for the next round. Inchcape Bodyshops found the going tough only managing one draw from their 5 games which was a decent 2-2 draw against Morelli Group. Mercedes won the group unbeaten with qualifiers VRVE 2nd, Proximo 3rd and Morelli Group 4th
It went right to the wire in group B on the final standings with CVS winning their last game securing first place, TLC Accident finished runners up coming through unbeaten and only conceding 2 goals so looked confident going into the knockouts. Axalta turned out to be the whipping boys losing all 5 games but a great effort throughout.
3 of the 4 went with form but Morelli Group who finished 4th beat Group B winners CVS 2 nil to seal their semi final slot.
Mercedes continued to impress beating Proximo 2 nil and VRVE hammered Morelli Group 5-2.
The 2 early favourites took their place in the final with Mercedes looking to repeat the group result against VRVE but it was a tighter game than their 4-2 win but they scored the single goal of the game to come out champions.
