On Monday 30th September, Biofocus were named winners of the Chesterford Research Park’s intercampus 5-a-side football tournament. The team beat off stiff competition over the course of the tournament from Illumina, SBS, and Glassworks but ultimately came out on top with exceptional team performances of five wins and only one loss.
The tournament was launched in July with the aim of building relationships amongst the various companies at Chesterford. In total, five teams entered: Illumina, SBS, Biofocus, Glassworks and The Nucleus. Unfortunately however, The Nucleus team had to pull out early due to injuries.
The tournament was a great success, achieving the goal of building relationships between companies who may otherwise not have had cause to interact, and setting the tone for future events. It is a tournament that we hope will become a permanent fixture at the Park - look out for details of next summer’s tournament in due course!
Congratulations to the Biofocus team, namely: James Osborne, Chris Hancock, Andrew Stott Bottom, Matt Turns, Will Esmieu and Ben Whitacre.
