The inaugural “Vet Plus Challenge Trophy” saw veterinary surgeons, academics and sales representatives take to the field at the University of Liverpool’s Wyncote training grounds on September 3.
The event involved a clash between Derbyshire’s Grove Veterinary Group and a team led by John Innes of the University of Liverpool’s School of Veterinary Science. Sales reps from Vet Plus joined the Grove team.
Commenting on the game, Tom Sutton, northern sales manager at Vet Plus said: “Steve Gillian of Grove Veterinary Group challenged John Innes to an 11 a-side football match at the Wyncote sports ground at the university.
“Prof Innes’ side were ahead 3-0 after 25 minutes and the Grove side responded by scoring three goals in 10 minutes after a tactical change around. Prof Innes’ side were leading the game 4-3 after the first half.”
He went on: “The Grove side fought a mighty comeback with some courageous tackles all over the field. Both keepers produced some outstanding saves and a nerve-biting onslaught of end-to-end attacks resulted in the game finishing up with Prof Innes’ team winning 6-4, claiming the trophy and enjoying the rights to some vintage champagne.”
