Shepherds Become Aberdeen Champions
Business Fives hosted its Aberdeen event with 25 companies competing for 3 qualification spots at the National Final and raising £9,585 for various local charities in the process.
Off the pitch, the Top Fundraiser award was hotly contested with Shepherds coming in third place having raised £555 for Hermes Bridge of Don Youth 2013 and DSV placing second with their total of £1,065 raised for The Archie Foundation. Out in front, the Dales Marine team took home the award having raised an amazing £6,035 for Andy’s Man Club.
On the pitch, Hutcheon Services made it to the Europa League final after beating Trident Maritime Systems 7-2. They went on to face Dales Marine T2 after their 4-3 victory against DSV.
With a qualification spot up for grabs, both teams gave it their all in the final! As the final whistle blew, it was Hutcheon Services who secured the qualification spot as well as a £150 donation for Friends of Anchor after winning 4-0.
In the Champions League, 11 goals were scored between both semi finals and it was Proserv who managed to make their way to the final after beating Red Wing 6-2 and went on to play Shepherds who beat Score Group 2-1.
Both teams secured their spots at the National Final taking place on Tuesday 18th October in Leeds and went on to compete for a £350 charity donation on offer.
In the final, it was Shepherds who would be crowned the new Aberdeen Business Fives champions.
The players were treated to stories from former Aberdeen and Dundee United star Mark Reynolds playing career at the buffet and drinks reception after the football.
