LOCAL businesses have enjoyed a fantastic day of football and evening entertainment, as teams took part in Burton Albion’s annual Corporate Five-a-Side tournament at Pirelli Stadium.

This year’s event saw 16 businesses battle it out in a brilliantly spirited competition, with lots of laughs, cheers and goals on show to contribute towards another brilliant event.

Following the conclusion of the football, the squads received a superb evening meal, followed by entertainment from specialist close-up Magician Darren Brand and stories from Gary Newbon's 50 years as a TV Sports Presenter.

The day was sponsored by Russell Roof Tiles, who also sponsor the East Stand at the Pirelli Stadium and as well as being the football club’s back-of-shirt partner.

“The event was excellently organised and though sadly Russell Roof Tiles could not progress beyond the group stages, all attendees thoroughly enjoyed the occasion, including the excellent hospitality provided on the evening. We look forward to participating again next year!”
