Mackenzie Construction proud to participate in Business Fives

Business Fives were back in Glasgow for the 2024 Scottish event as 25 companies took to the pitches at Glasgow’s Powerleague in a bid to become Glasgow Football Tournament Corporate Champions. The event saw an impressive 421 goals scored in 74 matches and an amazing £2,459 raised for various local and national charities.

The Mackenzie Construction team, made up of Team Captain Danny Brown, Danny Veitch, James Quinn, Jason Mair, Josh Buchanan, David Greer and Mark Greer did us proud, qualifying from the group stages of the ‘Champions League’ before eventually being defeated by a strong team from Scottish Water who went on to win the competition.

Ending up relegated to the ‘Europa’ League where competition was fierce, the team continued to play well eventually reaching the final where unfortunately they faced a 4-0 defeat against Armour.  Despite the defeat, we are extremely proud of our team, scoring 21 goals over the full event and raising important funds for our chosen charity, Homeless Project Scotland.

Speaking about the tournament the team commented, “It was friendly and played in good spirits, well organised and we would definitely do it again. It was a great experience and gave us a chance to talk to a few other companies involved in construction”.

The team also recognised it gave them the opportunity to get to know others in the business better, “Friday went well, it was good to talk to people I’ve not really had a chance to talk to while being in the company andwas good to sit down at the end as well with everyone from the team when the Q and A was on.”
