Chapman Taylor inter-studio football match goes Manchester’s way

Our Manchester and Düsseldorf studios went head-to-head at the weekend in a 5-a-side football competition in Germany. Despite strong competition, Manchester emerged as comfortable winners over three 20-minute games – 6-1, 7-2 and 6-5. The final result was CT Manchester 3 – CT Düsseldorf 0.

Mark Doughty captained his team to triumph despite the 3am finish at a local karaoke bar the night before, with Andy ‘the Cat’ Carroll providing a heroic goalkeeping display against Ruprecht Melder’s more mature side. The Düsseldorf studio is considering hiring 18-year old semi-professionals (on six-month trial contracts, obviously) in advance of their next game…

The two teams previously met in 2015, and CT Düsseldorf also played our Madrid studio last year. The CT international football tournament has become a successful regular event between our studios, with a mixed tournament involving more of our studios being planned for the near future.

The Manchester team were well looked after by their hosts, getting to enjoy some of the excellent work the Düsseldorf team are doing across Germany.

We all look forward to a return match in Manchester soon!
