Charity Football Match: Sheepy Old Boys vs OB United
Last week 14 members of the officebroker.com team pulled on their football boots to help raise funds for the church floor restoration in Sheepy Magna. The 11-a-side game was organised by Jim Venables, managing director of officebroker.com, and pitted the specially formed OB United against JimΓÇÖs regular team the mighty Sheepy Old Boys.
After a bright start in which OB United striker Paul Rowe scored with a towering header from an early corner, the Old Boys found their form and began to display the craft and ability that comes from playing together on a regular basis.
ΓÇ£We had them where we wanted them ΓÇô below a double digit goal tallyΓÇ¥ explained a member of the officebroker.com team in the post-match press conference held at the local pub.
Despite not making their first 11-a-side outing a victory, the OB United squad enjoyed the outing and sources from within the team are sure they can improve. A rematch with the Sheepy Old Boys in the near future is already being planned.
