The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) were crowned champions of the 10th edition of the London Corporate Challenge 2022! They claimed their second title on the bounce at a sunsoaked Richmond Athletics Ground on Friday 27th May.
The Cup final saw the defending champions fall behind early on to a well taken try from JLL 1. However the quick plays and pace of the FCA players eventually put their opponents to the sword. The reigning champions would finish with a flourish to run out 8-4 winners.
The Plate final was a very close contest with both teams trading scores early on. Kicking Ass-ael took the lead and the initiative in the early exchanges before Devonshires managed to overcome their early missed opportunities. As the game went on they showed more composure to draw level and pull away to a final score of 6-2.
In the Bowl Division, colleagues faced off against each other as JLL 4 faced JLL 3 – friendships were left on the sideline as both teams went all out to win. A tightly fought game ended with JLL 4 eventually pulling away with the win. The final score was 4-2.
All Division winners were awarded a £750 donation to a charity of their choice.
