Wylie Bisset lick the opposition in charity football tournament

Posted on September 5, 2017 by Wylie & Bisset

We were over the moon after winning our annual charity football tournament recently, having not lifted the winner’s cup since 2010.

Wylie & Bisset triumphed over 13 other teams in the event at Powerleague Glasgow, beating law firm Shepherd & Wedderburn in the final.

This is our 15th year of organising our charity five-a-side football competition. The 2017 tournament raised almost £800 for the charity Radio Lollipop at the Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow which also entered a team in the event.

Competing for the title alongside two Wylie & Bisset teams (WB Firm and WB Insolvency) were players from Accountant in Bankruptcy, Shepherd & Wedderburn, Gilson Gray, Clydesdale Bank, Pinsent Masons, Harper Macleod, Macdonald Henderson, Shepherd Surveyors, Curle Stewart and Morisons Solicitors

Joint Managing Partner Ross McLauchlan said: “Radio Lollipop is well- known for its work at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, helping to make a sometimes unwelcome stay easier for patients. Wylie & Bisset is proud to have the chance to help such an important charity and to contribute towards the wider wellbeing of the community that’s been our firm’s home since the business was founded.”

Joint Managing Partner Donald McKinnon added: “Like other workplaces in Glasgow, we take our football seriously. Wylie Bisset might top the league in our business results, but we recognise that’s no guarantee of success on the football pitch. Licking the opposition might have brought us success on the pitch, but the real prize is raising money for Radio Lollipop so they can continue to entertain kids when they really need cheering up.”

Stuart White of Radio Lollipop said: “Charity football tournaments are meant to be fun and bring out the lighter side of corporate competition. Joking aside, we are really grateful for the support of the business community in Glasgow taking part in Wylie & Bisset’s tournament and raising much-needed funds for Radio Lollipop.”
