Tesco 15-goal checkout overcomes Property Consortium UK to win football shield

1st July 2014

Future soccer stars of Property Consortium challenged Tesco Insurance to a seven-a-side football game recently.

But despite a brave fight from Property Consortium, Tesco Insurance was the close winner of the shield – by just 15-1 .

The challenging 90-minute match was held in Taunton Vale earlier this month, in what is set to become a yearly fixture. .

The Taunton bout was a rematch following the first game between the two companies held in Newcastle in 2012, which Tesco also won.

While the Property Consortium side contained two new team members, Tesco Insurance fielded their 2012 team line-up which includes two ex-professional players.

Upbeat Property Consortium captain, Tom Phillips, said: “Tesco’s performance can only be described as pure brilliance.

It was an intense match and we worked very hard but, despite a brilliant early goal from our teammate James Kelland to level us up early in the first half, we just couldn’t outdo Tesco this time.

“It’s always great to have the challenge of such an able team to play against as it keeps us training hard. We’re determined to win the shield next time.”
