M2 Computing were delighted to fully embrace the World Cup 2014 fever on a sunny evening in Brighton last week, by entering a team in the FirmBalls Charity Football Tournament. The 5-a-side team competed with 15 other local teams from the Sussex area to raise money for Active Sussex. Active Sussex are a local organisation dedicated to promoting health and well-being in the workplace.

Team M2 entered the Group stages in high spirits with their first game against Brighton University. A disappointing result to start with, the Brighton youngsters beat the M2 team 2-0. After a team tactics re-think and some brilliant saves from the goal keeper Tim Oelkers, M2 bounced back an impressive score of 4-1 against the Amex All Stars. Unfortunately, the fast pace was too much for the M2 team to handle in the final match of the group, and they were defeated 3-0 against Domestic & General. The team were disappointed to be out in the group stages, but it was all good fun and they merrily held their glasses up in the sunshine to toast the winners of the tournament, Air Menzes.
