R & L Holt - Confederation cup winners 2017!

On Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July, R & L Holt took part in the annual charity 9 a-side tournament at Evesham Jubilee Stadium.  20 teams competed in the match and R & L Holt secured a place in the final taking on rivals Sandifields Farm and winning 3-2 in a close and thrilling match. Many congratulations to the players especially to Plamen, despite sustaining an injury from playing on Saturday. Although he still managed to play goal keeper in the last match of the day against the Liverpool Legends taking on veterans such as Walsh and Garfield. Thank you for everyone who watched and supported to make it a most enjoyable day. The weather remained fine which was a bonus, although a bit to hot for the players!

Some photos from the events on Sunday.
