Consumer PR rivals Lynne Franks and Jackie Cooper came head to head in a pitch situation last week, in a ‘friendly’ five-a-side footie match.

Consumer PR rivals Lynne Franks and Jackie Cooper came head to head in a

pitch situation last week, in a ‘friendly’ five-a-side footie match.



The teams, led by Jackie Cooper managing director, the follicley-

challenged Robert-‘give-it some-passion-boys’-Phillips and Lynne Franks

director Graham Goodkind looked equally matched at kick-off.



But despite signing up top South American talent, in the form of its

Colombian cleaner ‘Rocky’, Lynne Franks was looking shaky in the first

half.



A hat-trick by marketing services man Johny Barron placed Jackie Cooper

in the lead and by the final whistle the agency emerged triumphant with

a seven-nil victory.



Undettered, Lynne Franks has called for a re-match and has signed an

undisclosed sponsorship deal with its new client Puma, for whom it is

promoting a new range of athletic footwear.



‘We will look good,’ warned Goodkind. ‘There’ll be no stopping us.’



Phillips’ personal assistant and team manager Heidi Conway had just one

regret: ‘I should have made Robert wear a bobble hat,’ she said. ‘I bet

he’s lost a lot of heat through his head.’
