On Tuesday 14th June, Friday 13th Networking Club held their Leicester Inter-firm football tournament inviting professional services firms from across Leicestershire to enter teams to compete for the prestigious Friday 13th Championship Trophy.

We had keen footballers from firms such as Newby Castleman, Torr Waterfield, Yeomans & Staniforth, Mazars, Macintyre Hudson, Shakespeare Martineau, Howes Percival, Dimensions, Barclays, Rowleys and Mark J Rees.

The tournament was a 5-a-side knockout-style event with group rounds, quarter finals, semi and a valiantly played final between Shakespeare’s and Yeomans and Staniforth, despite the heavy rain! The guys at Yeomans defeated Shakespeare’s in a spectacular 4-0 finish and took home the winner’s trophy!

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the teams who came along and competed. The event is run annually as a fundraiser for local charities, this year all proceeds will be going to Rainbow’s Hospice in Leicester. All the photos from the tournament are available to view on the Blusource Events Page, via the link below. There are some great full team photos and some interesting mid-match action shots too! Please do tag yourself and your friends/colleagues in these.


Over the years, this event has become a great success and become a favourite amongst Friday 13th’s repertoire of fun and different networking events. We are looking forward to our Nottingham version of the event which will take place this autumn… watch this space!

All of us at Blusource and Friday 13th enjoyed meeting the team players, albeit in a bit of a bustling crowded sports bar! Here are the details of your key Blusource contacts for the East Midlands in case you didn’t get to have a good catch up at the event (or maybe just need to apologise for an over enthusiastic tackle on pitch!)
