Football Legend Kolo Toure Manages ISC’s Football Team

16th January 2024

ISC recently took part in the annual GRS Group 5-a-side football tournament, held at the prestigious St. George’s Park, the official training ground for the England Football teams.

The event, organised in collaboration with the League Managers Association, featured former Premier League and EFL managers coaching teams from various divisions of the GRS Group. Eight teams were matched with eight professional managers, creating an exciting and competitive atmosphere.

ISC, who chose the team name Integrated Milan, were thrilled when Premier League and Ivory Coast legend Kolo Toure was announced as their manager.

Whilst the ISC team weren’t quite up to the same standards Kolo Toure was used to when he played at top clubs like Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool and Celtic, they still performed well thanks to the coaching and guidance from the manager.

Integrated Milan made it to the 3rd place play off, where they unfortunately lost on penalties, finishing 4th overall in the tournament.

The tournament was eventually won by GRS Trading’s southern team WalthamSTONE United, under the leadership of Steve Round who has been assistant first team coach at numerous Premier League clubs, most recently Arsenal. They knocked out a team from GRS Integrated Solutions Operations called the Pink Panthers, led by Dean Smith, former Aston Villa, Brentford, Leicester and Norwich manager.

Well done to all those who took part and many thanks to the coaches, support staff, organisers and hosts at the LMA in Staffordshire for making the event such a success.
