R&L Holt isn’t just your favourite tomato growing business, we additionally run a renowned football team called ‘Side-shoots FC’ which was established in 2006.
The team includes staff and friends across the sites and plays in a local five a side league and has regularly won the Premiership over the last 14 years, at this rate we now need a new trophy cabinet!
We have many notable moments from over the years but our proudest moment to date was winning the Growers United tournament in 2017. After having lost the final in 2015 to G’s we managed to get our revenge and beat them in a close game 2-1 at Evesham United ground. It was a tense match, but we were able to steal the game!
We are also proud to have had Alan Kennedy, ex-Liverpool, and double European Cup winner, as our honorary captain for a charity game with Vicarage Nurseries in 2018.
With many more exciting times ahead we always welcome new people to the team and have lots of fun, so if you fancy joining a welcoming, friendly and successful team, get in touch with us we would love to hear from you, you could be a real-keeper!
