THE Green Taverners have been crowned the first winners of the Argyle Corporate Cup.Friday saw the gates of Home Park thrown open for the inaugural staging of the competition, contested by a number of teams from across Devon and Cornwall.
The event was open to all – businesses, sports teams, social clubs or groups of friends, and took place on the Home Park pitch, whilst utilising the Tribute Legends Lounge, Executive Boxes and Dressing Rooms at Argyle.
With representation from companies including Coronet Engravers and J.H. Lidstone Ltd, supporters groups such as PASOTI and the Green Taverners and an appearance by the Argyle Legends the event was enjoyed by all. We are already keenly assessing the diary for viable dates for the 2015 edition!
The teams were split into two groups, with the top two finishers in each group entering the Corporate Cup knock-out phase and the other three teams entering a competition to contest the Argyle Corporate Plate. The event granted teams nearly three hours of playing time at Home Park, after striding out of the tunnel with the strains of Semper Fidelis ringing in their ears whilst their fans sitting in the Stadium cheered every touch of the ball.
The Green Taverners team came out victorious against the Green Taverners Legends in the hotly contested final of the Argyle Corporate Cup, whilst the North Petherwin Badgers beat the Argyle Staff team in the Corporate Plate final.
