Due to popular demand this year’s competition was reformatted into a five-a-side event.

The competition involved ten teams of 1st/2nd v 3rd/4th year apprentices playing a total of twenty short matches. After a tough sporting challenge a team from the 1st/2nd year grouping awarded victory, taking home the trophy in the final.

The Apprentice Training department would like to thank all of those who participated in the match and assisted with the fund raising especially The Wright family, fellow employees, Michael Scroggie and Seven Towers Training.
