Aspatria Rugby Day

Guests during Michael’s speech

The annual David Allen sponsorship day at Aspatria Rugby Club took place on Saturday 14 December. 

Every year a mixture of staff, clients and friends join us for an afternoon of corporate hospitality as a thank you for their support over the past year.

The afternoon began with my speech in which I welcomed everyone and officially opened the event thanking everyone for coming, for their support over the past year and also thanked the ladies committee for putting on another fantastic buffet for us all to enjoy. 

This year Aspatria were up against Keswick with kick off at 2.15pm.  The red and blacks weren’t going to let the weather stop them from gaining an early advantage, battling through the wind and the rain Aspatria scored after only two minutes retaining their lead when the half time whistle was blown with a half time score of 5:3.

The second half saw more wind, more rain and more action with Keswick piling on the pressure. Aspatria fought hard leading 19:3 after 55 minutes Keswick managed to score but Aspatria won with a final score of 19:8.    

After anyone that had ventured outside to watch the match had returned and dried off, Barney Clegg of the rugby club announced the winners of their raffle and we announced the winners of our Guess the Score competition. 

Everyone enjoyed the day and I would like to thank our guests, staff, the ladies committee and the rugby club for making it so such a success.
