Ford & Stanley Football at St Georges Park
On Monday 14th May 2018, Ford & Stanley, along with some clients and industry-friends, took part in a friendly football match against Else Solicitors (and clients) and with months of anticipation, the game did not disappoint…
St Georges Park hosted the evening, and it’s safe to say we were all blown away by the sheer size and grandeur of the venue. Playing on the Wembley replica, located in Burton-on-Trent, presented the opportunity of a lifetime for the sports-fans amongst us and really was the perfect location to host the game. Some of the team were even lucky enough to spot Robert Green and Gareth Southgate around the grounds (unfortunately, they were not up for joining Ford & Stanley’s team for the match…)
After a team photo or two, the game began at 18:30.
Players from both teams put in 110% effort, and both teams put on a brilliant show for the Ford & Stanley employees supporting from the side lines – there was a real sense of pride and positive attitude from the supporters.
After 80 minutes of exciting play, Else Solicitors claimed the bragging rights with a win, which, in their own admission didn’t quite reflect the balance of the game. It’s true to say that the quality shone through from in the competition; though Ford & Stanley put in a great performance on the night for their first ever game. Players are already talking about a re-match !
All in all, despite the disappointing result for our team, it really was a great evening. Events such as this give us the opportunity to spend time with our clients outside of the office environment, and strengthen our already outstanding relationships.
Else Solicitors – congratulations from everyone at Ford & Stanley !
