The prospect of England reaching the World Cup is certainnly mouth watering. However a week ago in Romford the other version of the World Cup was won by Saudia Arabia.

The Surveyors World Cup which was the Construction Industry equivalent took place on probably the hotest day of the year with a final that certainly reached boiling point.

The Downwell Group who provide Demolition and Enabling services to the Construction Industry were the organisers of this event at Play Football in Romford. This was the fourth year of the event which has grown from 12 teams competing to 32 at this event. The event also raised money for the Free Kicks foundation. Theyare a football based charity from Peterborough who give terminally ill, disadvantaged or bereaved children an apportunity to experience a football day with their favourite club as a mascot, meeting their heroes or simply getting the chance to watch their team.

The event was hosted by Ex West Ham and Talksport presenter Alvin Martin who is currently commentating on the World Cup.

Photography students from the local Technical College used the event to gain valuable work experience.

The tournament format was as the World Cup with teams playing in Groups and then going on to knockout stages. There was however a difference because the teams finishing in bottom places did not have to pack their bags and go home. They went into a runners up plate competition.

The winners of the tournament were Paragon Buiding Consultancy (Saudia Arabia) beating Martin Arnold (Sweden) 3-1 in a thrilling final. Alvin Martin commentated on the match in true talk sport style.

In the plate final Costa Rica (Ridge) beat Mexico (Edward Cooper Young) in a thrilling penalty shoot out.

It was an excellent way for Downwell to promote their services to the industry.
