INDUSTRYNEWS All Kicked Off »»The glazing industry’s national five aside football competition GM Football Fives, which took place at Birmingham City Football Club in early May, has been hailed as a huge success. Alan Sadler, Managing Director of Profix and GM Fundraising team member explains: “We’d like to thank everybody who helped make the inaugural GM Football Fives such a great success, in particular the 128 players – with a notable mention to Malene Svendsen from ERA who played fantastically, both alongside and against all the male competitors as the only female player. “Congratulations to Travis Perkins, who emerged as champions on the day, and a great effort from MB Frames/Oakley Green Conservatories for reaching second place, and Glazerite – the most senior team on the day – for achieving third place. “As well as the tournament itself, other prizes up for grabs at the presentation ceremony in the evening included the Golden Boot, which was shared by Ben Jeavons of Travis Perkins, Matt Draper of Willmott Dixon and Callum Willmot from MB Frames/ Oakley Green Conservatories, who scored six goals apiece. “Player of the Tournament as voted for by the qualified referees – including ERA Home Security CEO Darren Waters – also went to Callum Willmot, who gained three votes throughout the day. The Spinning Penalty challenge provided a high proportion of the laughs and was admirably won by Quickslide’s Ben Lawrence. “But the biggest presentation of the day came before the tournament kicked off, with the handing over to Hope House of the cheque for funds raised at the Spring Ball, which were in excess of £35,000.” Alan adds. www.gmfundraising.co.uk Suppliers of Hand Tools, Consumables & Machine spares to the Window Industry LOWER YOUR COSTS WITHOUT COMPRIMISING ON QUALITY - SEE THE FULL RANGE ONLINE T: 0844 880 0430 www.wicuk.co.uk C L E A RV I E W-U K .
