Burns Pet Nutrition on the ball

Burns Pet Nutrition on the ball
25/09/2007

On August 24th 2007, Londoners noticed a most peculiar sight on the Thames. The top deck of the MV Erasmus, a Thames river cruiser, was transformed into a floating football pitch, complete with lines, corner flags, goals and most importantly, with players!

The cruiser then travelled up and down the Thames from Putney Bridge to the Thames barrier while the first football tournament on the Thames was held on board!

Eight teams took part, including one from Burns Pet Nutrition, who did really well in reaching the semi-finals. Alongside Willie Donachie, manager of Millwall FC, and a team of masters, they were competing for - what else? - the River Plate. The players had to work hard to concentrate on their football as the boat passed landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, London Eye and Canary Wharf.

The event was organised by © Top Corner Events to help draw attention to the grave lack of sports facilities in central London and to publicise The Top Corner Fund, a new charitable fund administered by the Capital Community Foundation. Its aim is to support existing or help to establish new accessible and fun grassroots sports competitions for children in London. To make a donation visit www.justgiving.com/TopCornerFund
