It was a mighty struggle between Landor and Rodney Fitch, but when it came down to penalties the final of the Network Challenge Shield five-a-side football tournament was decided by a man named Ulrick. Perhaps the only player from the 16 design teams on show to actually look the part, Ulrick was the goalie for Rodney Fitch Design Consultants and “spread himself well” to deny several Landor penalty takers. The result was perhaps the right one, bearing in mind Landor’s blatant foul on a Rodney Fitch defender as Landor attempted to equalise from a free kick. So glory to the “freelance” Ulrick and to Rodney’s team, blessed by touchline support from the man himself. Sympathy to Hill Watson, whose team was decimated by injuries to their goalkeeper (broken arm) and managing director Pete Watson. It is pure coincidence, of course, that Design Week’s only victory was against Hill Watson.
