As part of our commitment to the Castrol brand after becoming part of the exclusive Castrol Service Network, three of our key staff were recently invited to the prestigious St. George’s Park to take part in an outstanding seven-a-side football tournament. The winner of the tournament was to be crowned the inaugural Castrol Dream Team champion.
The exclusive event, at the official home of England’s national football teams, gave the lucky participants the opportunity to see and experience the same state-of-the-art facilities as the country’s top stars. Each team was also assigned to a legend of the game, some of the most respected names in the sport, who coached their team in the build-up to the matches.
The three ballers selected to represent Tyre Spot at this prestigious competition were, Mark Summerill from Consett branch, Anthony Hutton from our branch on Norham Road, North Shields, and Dean Pattinson from the Gosforth branch on Sandy Lane.
As fate would have it, the Tyre Spot lads were drafted into a team that were to be managed by a man that needs no introduction to North East football fans, the one and only Chris Hughton. The team was given the name ‘The Randoms’ and they gave their all for the white shirt of the team. Unfortunately, even with Chris Hughton steering the ship, The Randoms didn’t take home the trophy but, there were no losers that day.
After the tournament, a leggy Mark commented that, “Myself, Dean and Anthony had a brilliant time and I’m sure it’s an experience we’re not likely to get again and see how the rich and famous players are looked after. Got to meet some ex-Toon legends along the way and have a good night.”
A fancy awards dinner followed the tournament and the guys got to mix with the other teams and some of their footballing heroes, then it was off for some much-needed rest in the stylish Hilton at St. George’s Park.
Castrol staff were on hand to make sure that the event ran smoothly and that the participants had everything they needed.
