Builders merchant buying group NBG LLP’s annual football tournament last week saw a triumph for the Southern region over the teams from the Central and Northern regions.

Southern merchants triumph at NBG tournament

The competition is always held round the NMBS exhibition and NBG LLP executive chairman Allan Durning says the winners vary, usually depending on how much alcohol has been consumed the evening before.

This year, the triumphant southerners were captained by Rav Sumal and they beat Mike MacLellan’s Northern team by six goals to three, before drawing with John Dibble’s Central team in the final. The result of the Northern versus Central match was a gentlemanly two-all draw.

“I’d like to thank everyone for all their efforts and energy in participating in this annual event,” Durning told “It’s proving to be a very successful way of promoting camaraderie amongst the regions and bringing together people from around the country on a sporting basis.”
