Match report – APR vs Just, Five-a-Side Football
Thursday 30 November saw the rebirth of the APR five-a-side football team, as APR took on Just at Shoreditch Powerleague. Gary Heslop, Chris Nash, Kunal Patel, Deven Rickaby and Adam Smith lined up in an all-star APR team, with Dennis Wang a deadline day free transfer to the Just team.
A highly competitive match saw Just the narrow victors, with a final scoreline of 15-13. We prefer to see the 28 goals scored as evidence of the attacking flair, incisive passing and crisp finishing on display, rather than an indictment on any player’s lack of willingness to defend. Every player bagged a goal, so even in defeat there was personal glory.
A return fixture is being negotiated, and APR will extend our five-a-side challenge to other clients in the New Year. Clients should be warned that the APR players are under strict instructions to see the Christmas break as the perfect opportunity to complete a gruelling fitness regime and to use their actuarial skills to develop an exhaustive analysis of the match statistics, thereby guaranteeing footballing success in the future.
Congratulations to Just, and we look forward to the rematch soon!
