Held: 26th May 2016
Location: St Mary's Stadium
Southampton FC’s St Mary’s stadium played host to one of the most eagerly awaited matches of the football season between teams representing Complete FS, the specialist lending packager and challenger bank, Shawbrook Bank’ commercial division.
Over 30 players took part during the game made up of staff from both firms along with family, friends and local brokers and sourcing system firm, Twenty7Tec.
Complete FS’s team ran out convincing winners by 8 goals to 4, and with a wide range of footballing skills on show, along with plenty of new football boots in evidence, the game was played in a very competitive spirit with plenty of enthusiasm to make up for the lack of the silky skills usually on offer at the famous stadium. Scouts from Europe’s top teams, notable by their absence, were clearly not motivated enough to see if they could unearth the new Lionel Messi.
Tony Salentino, Director of Complete FS, said ‘We’re very lucky we have great relationships with our brokers and Shawbrook, this was certainly a dream come true for many Saints & football fans. It’s not often we can mix great business with such pleasure, although I’m feeling it today!’
Peter Turner of Shawbrook ‘This was a fantastic opportunity to thank Complete for the support of their team and brokers, letting them achieve the best ‘partner’ outcome was nice for them too. The experience was amazing and we look forward to the return match!’
