Winners of Sellick Partnership Manchester Professionals Football League 2011 Announced


The final fixtures of the Sellick Partnership, Manchester Professionals Football League (MPFL) took place on 15th March at Powerleague, with NCC Group winning the ‘Champions’ trophy, BDO receiving the ‘Runners Up’ plate and James Fieldhouse from BDO winning the ‘Player of the Tournament’ trophy.

Sellick Partnership’s financial recruitment team established the league this year for finance professionals across Manchester to support football as a sport and to create a platform for networking across the city – as well as raising money for St Ann’s Hospice. A total of sixteen teams participated in the League this year, which resulted in a total of 64 fixtures taking place since the beginning of January.

Captain of NCC Group, Jonny Hyde commented, “It was fantastic to be invited by Sellick Partnership to take part in the competition, and for such a worthy cause. It was a great opportunity to interact with other like-minded professionals too.

“The competition was extremely well organised by the team at Sellick Partnership and they deserve full credit. We would be delighted to be invited again and look forward to retaining our title.”

Player of the Tournament winner, and BDO runner up, James Fieldhouse commented, "It was great to be involved in the first ever Sellick Partnership MPFL. The tournament was extremely well organised and all of our matches were competitive but played in the right spirit.

”BDO are looking forward to the next MPFL and hopefully we can go one better next time and bring home the trophy!”

Aaron Drewitt, Permanent Finance Manager for Sellick Partnership and keen fan of the sport, has commented: ”I am thrilled with the terrific support we’ve had for MPFL in its first year and the commitment of the teams involved. All teams have participated with a real sense of sportsmanship and approached the games in high sprits.

”After obtaining multiple enquires and the positive feedback from teams this year, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting another MPFL in August 2011 and are expecting at least 24 teams to sign up. Alongside our Cricket League, it’s my aim for the MPFL to become bigger and better year on year!

“I would also like to congratulate both NCC Group and BDO on their successes and look forward to seeing them participate again in August 2011.”
