On a freezing cold Friday evening, BRI Business Recovery and Insolvency's Milton Keynes office ("BRI") (along with team mates made up of some local accountants and solicitors) took to the field to play a 5 a side match against Metro Bank Plc.
The cold weather clearly had taken effect, as BRI froze from kick off and soon found themselves 5-1 down by half time, with things looking bleak for the second half! Metro Bank's very own Jose Mourinhos' watched on with beaming smiles (also known as Raj Chahal and Mike Adamson).
As the second half commenced the weather became even colder, however, BRI managed to warm their spirits by playing some great football ("tic tac style").
Two late goals from BRI earned a well deserved 9-9 draw to the disbelief of Metro Bank (and some BRI team members). "Fergie Time" certainly helped BRI out on this occasion.
At the immediate post match conference; Tom Guthrie and Marco Piacquadio of BRI (once they had caught their breath) announced that they were delighted with the end result and the fact that they were still (just about) able to run around for an hour without the need of medical assistance.
A future rematch is being planned, at which BRI hope to improve on their solid previous effort and perhaps even start playing from kick off the next time around.
