Derby County - Tim Bates

I just wanted to email over and say thanks again for an amazing experience put on by yourself and the team. It was my first experience of playing football at a professional stadium and it was absolutely incredible... a day I really will never forget. The whole experience was a pleasure, from signing up for the day to the organisation of shirts to the actual match day. It was very hard to fault and my family also had a great time too!

I would like to thank you personally for all your help with this. It's very rare I deal with other companies who answer queries so promptly! Although you've been extremely busy you've always got back to me with answers to my questions, which helped the process a great deal. You do a great job, so thank you very much for helping me out with my incessant emails!

I'll certainly be taking inspiration from Bob Thorpe and coming back again next year at the ripe old age of 43! I thought my playing days were nearly over but the experience at the weekend has reignited the passion to get back to playing proper 11-a-side games. I'll also watch every match at Pride Park thinking "I've played there"... something not a lot of people can say!

Thanks again for everything and keep up the good work!
