Ben Stern, LDF trainer, said: “A well organised event, at a fantastic location. The facilities were first class, as were the staffs of both Aldermore and those representing St George’s Park.
It was a great day supporting a very worthy charity Headway and we are looking forward to defending our trophy next year.”
