The Jammu and Kashmir Bank football team on Thursday has emerged champions of the 11th Christmas Gold Cup Football Tournament 2017-18. The bank’s team defeated PDC X1 in the final match played at GGM Science College Ground.
The spokesman while congratulating the team quoted the bank Chairman and CEO Parvez Ahmed saying “The news of your achievement has come as a great delight to all of us in the JK Bank Family. All your hard work, commitment and practice have paid off. The composure and patience team has displayed during the closely fought final have bearings of the values of the JK Bank as an institution.”
The victory he added was special as the players got less time for practice being involved in the routine banking operations post demonetization when the bank deployed all its human resources for providing hassle free service to the people of the state.
The Chairman further stated that “It is a matter of great pride for J&K Bank family that our Football team has added one more feather and have continued its last year’s performance by winning this prestigious Gold Cup and I fervently hope they will achieve more such feats in future as well.”
Later while addressing to the team the chairman said “you should conduct yourselves in such manner that enhances image and reputation of the Bank. You must ensure highest standards of professionalism in the sport.”
