Wavin Wanderers take home the 7-aside trophy!

Congratulations to Wavin Wanderers who were winners of our annual Rudridge 7-aside Football Tournament.  The team, which included ex-professional footballer Francis Benali, beat Charcon Athletic, who welcomed Steve Claridge to their side, 2-1 in the final at St Mary's Stadium, the impressive home of Premier League side Southampton FC.

The competitive and fun tournament, which took place on Thursday 25th May, has become a popular annual fixture in our calendar and we were delighted that this year's event was organised by former West Ham, Everton, Leicester and England legend – and Rudridge ambassador – Tony Cottee, who also presented Wavin Wanderers with the winner's trophy. 

The day saw 11 teams which were made up of customers, suppliers, Rudridge staff and a recognised ex-professional.  This year we had the pleasure of being joined by Paul Walsh, Steve Lomas, Darren Anderton, Jan Molby, Francis Benali, Matt Holland, Nigel Winterburn, Garry Parker, John Salako, Matt Elliott and Steve Claridge, who all brought great skill and an additional competitive edge to each game. 

The tournament was not without drama on occasion with ex-Manchester City and West Ham United player Steve Lomas being given a red card for dissent, proving that the ex-professionals remain as passionate about the game as ever.

The teams competed in two leagues of five teams, with the top four qualifying for the quarter-finals.  The bottom two sides from each league battled it out for the Wooden Spoon, which this year was 'won' by Darren Anderton's Savage Shooters.

A huge thank you to all teams for making it once again a successful and highly enjoyable tournament, and to all the companies that supported and attended the day – Aco PLC, Milton Pipes, Day Aggregates, Marshalls, Brett Landscaping, Stanton Bonna, Polypipe, Wavin Plastics, Peter Savage, and Charcon.
