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.

Well done to everyone who took part in the Go Carting Championships this year. A great time was had by all. Roly was denied the winner’s podium for the first time in a long time by some excellent driving by Mihai. Crossing the line just behind him were Plamen in second and Roly in third.
Congratulations to Mihai!!
