The Slide Away Team would like to say thank you and well done to all those who took part in the Spurs Legends vs Waitrose charity football match yesterday including a very big thank you to Simon Barker for organising the event.
It was a glorious day - The sun was shining and the event was well attended. A rendition of Sweet Caroline from the Elvis tribute act before the main event was just what was needed to get the crowd going!
There was everything you could want from a football match - end to end action and plenty of goals. Waitrose took an early lead but the Spurs Legends quickly equalised. This set the tone for the match with frequent goals and each team taking the lead at certain points of the match. At half time the score was 5-3 to the Spurs Legends.
Waitrose had a strong second half and were leading 8-7 until the Spurs Legends scored a penalty on the final whistle, so the end result was an 8-8 draw. Thank you to everyone who played on both teams - you gave us a very entertaining match.
Thank you also to everyone who attended, we hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did.
All the money raised for Slide Away will be put to good use supporting local bereaved children in Maidstone and surrounding areas in West and North Kent.
