Article date: Sat, 28 Feb 2009 13:13 GMT
The office 5-a-side team has become the latest to bring a glittering award to the UKFast headquarters after receiving a trophy for successfully winning promotion to the Manchester Power League 1st Division.
The dedicated UKFast footballers received their trophy and individual mementoes at a lavish awards dinner at Power League central HQ in Manchester on Friday February 28th. For the team the successful night was the ultimate reward for achieving the distinguished feat of two consecutive promotions.
To win a place in the top division, the Nee Beasties (a name resulting from a lost in translation moment) swept all but one opponent aside and now team top scorer Mike Anson is looking forward to the challenge of getting to the top of division one. "We are delighted to have won this trophy and a place at the top table. Our team has come a long way over the past couple of years and we, as a group of work mates, can enjoy a real sense of achievement tonight."
Team member and UKFast communications director Jonathan Bowers added, "UKFast is committed to helping our people realise their potential. That is why owners Lawrence and Gail Jones are delighted to support the UKFast 5-a-side football team. As a player, I also know how hard the guys have worked for this success; it is a testament to the team spirit engendered in all UKFast people."
With an even tougher test ahead, the team has been taking advantage of UKFast's rapid expansion to sign up stars of the future. The new members are already shaping up well with the UKFast lads readying themselves to take on the best of the league.
