Ashgate Hospice vs. Spencers Solicitors Charity Match 2014

Teams from Spencers Solicitors and Ashgate Hospice took part in a charity football match last Saturday to raise funds for the Chesterfield based hospice.

Ashgate Hospice is an independent charity that provides specialist palliative care (care to relieve pain rather than cure) at its Hospice and in the wider community for adults throughout North Derbyshire. The Ashgate Hospice football team was made up of hospice staff, volunteers and their families.

Match highlights

The match kicked off at 10AM on 24th May at the Proact Stadium, the home of Chesterfield FC, and supporters from both Spencers and Ashgate Hospice were in attendance. The Ashgate squad were drawn the home dressing room and donned the blue home kit, while Spencers were outfitted in the flattering gold away kit.

After a cagey start by both teams, the match burst into life with a spectacular overhead kick scored by Spencer’s forward Alex Wildman who got on the end of a pinpoint cross from Danny Keenan. Each team then traded goals through the rain with some great saves being made by both sets of keepers and defenders. The match finally ended in a well deserved 4-2 victory to Ashgate Hospice.

Support from the stands

As well as supporting their teams during the match, Spencers and Ashgate volunteers sold raffle tickets to those in attendance raising over £180 and also collected nominations for a man of the match.

Post match a buffet and drinks were provided for the players along with presentation of the winner's trophy to the Ashgate team captain and man of the match award to Spencers Danny Keenan.

Martyn Gilbert, Spencers Solicitors midfielder and Chief Information Officer added:

"The match was a great game and the players from both teams were proud to play a part in raising money for such a vital charity. We would also like to thank all the people who helped organise the event and came out to support their local hospice."
