Allan Hall Takes Home the Touch Football Trophy Yet Again!
Being renowned as the team to beat, while most were relaxing early on Sunday 17th September, the Allan Hall touch football team were arriving at the Macquarie University Sports Fields, to participate in the NSW 40th Annual Touch Football Tournament run by Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.
The team began some fierce training in lead up to the competition, under the guidance of Gordon Parish, an Australian touch-football player and managing director of Allan Hall Human Resources.
Whilst he was unable to be at the event on the day, through the guidance of the captain Frans, the team proved that the training certainly paid off, topping the round robin draw undefeated.
After a close win in the semi-finals against Nexia Australia, it was time to prove ourselves in the Grand Final.
As the heat soared and bodies began to ache, the team took to the field to compete for the big trophy. With guts, determination (and a little sustenance from our support crew), and amazing team work, we were able to come home with the win!
With only a few minor injuries, the team celebrated the win with the firm at morning tea and coach Gordon was suitably impressed.
One thing’s for sure – we will be back next year and cannot wait!
