The Michael Houghton Memorial Cup

New Gorbals’ Head of Maintenance, Michael Houghton, sadly passed away at the beginning of this year. Since then, the team at New Gorbals Housing Association have been working hard to make sure that Michael gets the tribute he deserves.

Michael was a big football fan and a keen player, so it seemed fitting that his colleagues organise a 5 a side football tournament as a tribute to him. 

The Michael Houghton Memorial Cup was established, and the first annual event took place on the 23rd of April 2016.  Bell Group was delighted to support the event along with fellow contractors and local housing associations.

Fifteen teams competed in a 5 a side football tournament, and helped raise over £2860 on the day for The Brain Tumour Charity.

Bell Group is proud to be the first winner of The Michael Houghton Memorial Cup.
