Football match raises over £1000 for GamesAid
It was Media vs Industry last month at an 11-a-side match at The County Ground – donated by EA who are one of the sponsors of Swindon Town FC. The teams were managed by Future’s Richard Kieth (media) and Get Games’ Graeme Struthers (industry).
It was a close match with the media team edging it 3-2 with 2 goals from Eurogamer’s Josh Heaton. The annual dislocation this year went to Codemaster’s Matt Horsman and his finger (last year it was Richard Kieth’s shoulder). They raised over £1,000 for GamesAid, including a £10 fine for Official PlayStation Magazine’s Ben Wilson for a shocking tackle and yellow card. A big thanks to Richard Keith and Graeme Struthers for organising.
