The day began with a kids training session lead by Chelsea FC coaches before the players took to the field to contest 80 minutes of football in sweltering conditions. The game, which saw two teams ably captained by Sky Alive's management duo Peter Daire and Ray James, did not disappoint.
Following a close encounter, with goals from Barclays' Dave Thomas, Carlsberg's Gareth Roberts and a hat-trick from man-of-the-match Tony Smith from Endsleigh, Daire's side eventually triumphed.
The match, which saw notable performances from Chris Taylor from SABMiller, Jeremy Gilbert from Nikon and Gary Booker from Electronic Arts, was decided after heroic goalkeeping from Barclays' Matt Appleby in a nerve jangling penalty shootout.
