CHAMPIONS of Scotland!

CHAMPIONS of Scotland!

That’s our proud boast after the Graham Environmental Services team captured the prestigious Business Fives title at Glasgow’s Soccerworld.

MD Ross Graham and the squad had already been crowned Tayside champions and after an impressive 15-game run the lads saw off Story Contracting 4-2 in a hard fought final.

Nearly 80 businesses entered the competition organised by Business Fives and insider.co.uk, which has raised around £10,000 for charity.

Tagged “The Rat Catchers,” the team’s fantastic efforts saw our nominated charities Cash for Kids and Downs Syndrome Scotland share the £1500 prize-money.

Ross said: “It was a brilliant event and very well organised. We enjoy our fives and the lads were superb. They did us proud.

“We were delighted to progress from the Tayside event backed by the Dundee and Angus Chamber to the Glasgow finals and it was great to come home with the trophy.

“Even better, we were pleased to split the winning cheque between Cash for Kids and Downs Syndrome Scotland. It’s a great way to top off our 25th anniversary celebrations.”

Craig McFadden’s goal scoring performance was singled out by former Rangers and Brighton striker Gordon Smith for the man of the match award. Former East Fife centre Ross and our current Montrose and ex-St Johnstone midfielder Martyn Fotheringham, with a double, were also on target.

The squad skippered by Ross featured fellow director Phil McKenna, Fotheringham, McFadden, Neil Mackay, Stewart Sheed, Phillip McLagan, Jamie Graham and Chic Campbell.
