Bishop’s Stortford-based firm Chip & PIN Solutions Ltd, a UK leading provider of card payment services, supports Cub Scouts football finals.
With budgets tight for the local Cub Scout packs football final, things were looking a little grim for the location of the event. That is until local business Chip & PIN Solutions Ltd stepped in and sponsored the event. The competition takes place every year throughout the football season and finals are held in April, but this year, through sponsorship, the finals took place at Woodside Park the home of Bishop’s Stortford FC.
Managing Director of Chip & PIN Solutions, said “It was a great pleasure to help out with the funding for the Cubs of Bishop’s Stortford. We are delighted that that the Cubs all thoroughly enjoyed it. We would like to offer our thanks to John Turner and the staff at Bishops Stortford FC for their work and support on the event.”
Paul Monti from the Apache Cub Scout Pack said “A big thank you to Bishops Stortford Football Club and Chip & PIN Solutions for organising the day, I thought it was fantastic and so did the Cubs. They said they were all excited to be taking part! I thought the organisation of the whole day was superb, the staff were really friendly and helpful. The matches were great – the only problem was that they weren’t long enough! It was a day Apache Cubs will remember for a long time, and hope to do it again next season. We expected it to be brilliant and it was made even more so by winning the Chip & PIN Cup! Thanks again!”
In a well-filled stadium the top 4 of the league played 2 semi-finals. In the first semi-final Saxon Orange drew with Viking White 1-1. Penalties had to bring an outcome with Saxon Orange winning 3-2. The second semi-final brought a win for Apache, beating Viking Blue 1-0. Both matches were close battles with a lot of goalmouth excitement.
After the semi-finals, Mohican and Saxon Blue played for the Chip & Pin Wooden Spoon Cup. Both packs were bottom of the league. Saxon Blue won with a 5-1 victory.
The last game of the night was the Chip & Pin Cubs Cub final between Apache and Saxon Orange. Like the league matches between them, this was a very competitive game. In the end the league winners Apache won 2-1.
John Turner of Bishops Stortford FC said “It was a very successful evening”.
