EC Brighton staff team, winners of the UK EC football tournament!!!


Last Sunday EC Brighton sent 3 teams to the annual EC UK Football tournament. Our teams included staff and students.

In total, 17 teams entered from every EC School in the UK including London, Oxford, Cambridge and Bristol.
Two of our teams reached the semi-finals and unfortunately we had to play each other. The team that reached the final, called “Catenaccio“ was mainly staff members and included the following players:
• Victor (Accommodation Officer)
• Ivan (Academic Administrator)
• Simone (Operations Manager)
• Khaled (Teacher)
• Bernard (Centre Director)
• Lee (Student)
• Yubeen (Student)

The final was a close match but Catenaccio won is 4-1 and lifted the cup !
You can see the cup in reception !
At tonight’s student party at about 22:00, the team will be celebrating their victory.
Congratulations to the winning team especially our captain, Victor and “golden boot” Ivan ! We all scored goals (except our goalkeeper Khaled!) and showed how working together as a team can beat the best of opposition!
A big thanks to all those who came on Sunday, both players and supporters. All three Brighton teams played very well and we were unlucky not to bring more medals back!
We look forward to defending our title next year
