Kinesis Play Jones Environmental in First Ever Kinesis Challenge Cup


Recently, the Kinesis Sales team played Jones Environmental, who are located in Deeside/ North Wales, in a 7-a-side football challenge match at Goals, Chester.

Both teams got into spirit of the event sporting new kits, with Kinesis wearing the mighty Barcelona shirts but that was, sadly, where the similarity ended.

The first half saw Jones youthful side put the Kinesis team to sword with a 9-2 win, secured through some skilful football and well taken goals by Jones players, coupled with a few of Kinesis players suddenly realising that they hadn’t kicked a ball in 5 years and needed regular oxygen breaks to be able to catch the Jones lads!

After a chance to recover, take on water and get a motivational pep talk from the team captain, the second half the score was zeroed and Kinesis saved face by keeping Jones to one goal and scoring twice themselves.

Both goals came from one of the younger members of the Kinesis team who were drafted in to strengthen the team! The Kinesis team then utilised the 'park the bus defence strategy!!' to hold on to a 2-1 win.

Special mention must go to Tom and Steve at Jones and Nassima Mokri from Kinesis for helping organise the match; Nassima even made a star appearance at the end of the game, nearly scoring twice!!

Turnout saw more than 20 members of Jones staff come to play, watch and stay for short presentation afterwards.  Awards were given for Worst Tackle, Best Goal, MVP for both teams and “Player least likely to get a trial at Tranmere – or Endeavour Award!” ….. Kinesis presented the KINESIS CHALLENGE CUP which was made for event to launch new Kinesis Marketing campaign.

The match was such a success that a challenge was made by Jones to replay again in September... so watch this space for more football news!
