Workplace Bashes winners, EMC
The inaugural Workplace B’Ashes took place at the BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground on Wednesday, August 21st, and business management and corporate finance company EMC triumphed.
The event, organised by the club, was intended to let local businesses play on the hallowed turf as well as letting them experience the fantastic on site facilities and corporate hospitality offered by the club.
Six teams went head to head at Hove playing Kwik cricket but it was EMC that walked off with the trophy, signed T20 shirt and complimentary match tickets after beating Brighton and Hove Jobs in the final. Other participants included Santander, an A and B team from Platinum Lace, Fireco and Active Sussex.
Nik Askaroff, Managing Director at EMC said: “We are delighted to have won. It was a great day and a lot of fun. I think it’s a great way to team build and fantastic to get the opportunity to play on the pitch at Hove. We will definitely be looking to defend the trophy next year!”
Tony Cottey, Business Development Manager at Sussex County Cricket Club, said: “I am sure this event could become a permanent fixture on the business calendar for many years to come. EMC did really well and I’d like to thank all the teams for taking part and making it such good fun.”
Sussex County Cricket Club works in partnership with many Sussex Businesses, and several choose to host their events at the outstanding facilities at the county ground.
Many also invest in Sussex Cricket’s wide range of community programmes, including offering opportunities to those from disadvantaged and disabled communities.

The Workplace 'B'Ashes 2013!
The Workplace ‘B’ashes is taking place at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground this Wednesday August 21st. It’s a great opportunity for businesses to get onto the hallowed turf and Bash some cricket balls around at the home of Sussex County Cricket Club. No cricketing experience is necessary – but there will be a special prize for the winners! 1839 will be joining us from 4pm onwards with one of their famous BBQs.
With the line-up for the Workplace ‘B’ashes taking shape, EMC’s Managing Director Nik Askaroff has run the rule over the businesses signed up to take part on Wednesday (21st August).
Nik said: “EMC cannot wait to lock horns with the opposition on Wednesday. While I wouldn’t want to underestimate the other business in the competition, my team have been watching the cricket this summer whilst enjoying the terrific corporate hospitality from 1839 at Hove, and all look in great shape to do battle.
“I hear that Gary Peters and BrightonandHoveJobs.com are very hopeful, as are a team from Brighton & Hove Albion, but I’m quietly confident that my colleagues will turn in performances that will secure the inaugural ‘B’ashes!
“On a more realistic note, this is going to be a lot of fun and I am convinced that this will be an event that will grow and become one that many businesses put in their diary for the year ahead. Sussex County Cricket Club has worked really hard and invested a considerable amount of money to turn the County Ground into a really attractive and welcoming venue for corporate supporters, as well as the faithful fans and members who sit in the stands and the famous deckchairs.”
In addition to EMC, BrightonandHoveJobs.com and Brighton & Hove Albion, the other businesses confirmed so far include Santander, Fireco and Platinum Lace.
Nik added: “I know it is very late notice but if any businesses fancy an eleventh hour entry into the Workplace ‘B’ashes they should contact the club on 01273 827115 today. It is free to enter and I know there are a couple of places still up for grabs.”
