A team from the Co-operative Group’s head office in Manchester has emerged victorious in the national finals of the Caravan five-a-side competition, which was sponsored by Primula.
It was a close run thing. But the Co-op team emerged victorious in a thrilling final - beating Manor Bakeries 3:0.
The national finals were the culmination of an event that started a few months back with a series of regional heats.
The top teams from those events were all invited to participate in last weekend’s national finals, where the overall winners were crowned the best footballers in grocery.
The Co-op team were not the only winners. As part of the build-up to the competition, Swedish Match generously offered all those who entered a regional heat the chance to win two tickets to the England v Croatia game in Lisbon.
Somerfield deputy store manager John Gallop won the tickets - and saw one of the best games of the tournament.
