Saturday 10 December saw David Allen return to Aspatria Rugby Club for our annual sponsorship day.
Every year, we like to invite friends and clients to join us for an afternoon of corporate hospitality as a thank you for supporting us over the past year.
Guests arrived promptly at 1pm, coming from all over the county with many arriving by train. Michael Peile who will officially take up the position of associate on 1 January delivered the official welcome before inviting guests to sample a drink or two whilst enjoying a bite to eat from the fantastic buffet, laid on by the club’s ladies committee… then the match kicked off.
This year the team was up against Wirral, a team who earlier in the season had beaten the Aspatria side, however, this time it was a very different story. Wirral made a strong start with Aspatria fighting off the attacks but as the half time whistle was blown Aspatria had secured a 10-5 advantage. In the second half, Wirral piled on the pressure by again making a strong start and were even ahead 10-15 at one point but a late show from Aspatria saw them snatch a 17-15 Victory.
After all the excitement we headed back into the clubhouse where Derek Baty, the new MD of David Allen Financial Services announced the winners of our Guess the Score competition.
Many of our guests have said they had a fantastic day and they were happy to see so many of our staff present on the day to meet our clients and soak up the atmosphere. A special thank you to the staff and the ladies committee for ensuring we had such a fantastic day.
