ABD match ball sponsor of Bath Rugby v Sale Sharks

24th February 2018

Tim Hotchkiss (Partner), Alexander David (Partner), Tom Paget (Senior Associate), Frances Nash (Associate) and Kelly Chandler (Solicitor) of ABD hosted 18 guests in the Ricoh Suite at the Bath Rugby v Sale Sharks game on Saturday, 24th February.  ABD was also the proud sponsors of the match ball for the game.  The photograph below captured the moment that Tim Hotchkiss and Alexander David were handed the match ball signed by the entire Bath Rugby squad by Australian international, Nathan Charles. 

The team from ABD greeted their guests at 11.30am in the Ricoh Suite before enjoying the usual excellent food and service from the hospitality team at Bath Rugby.  It was then time to head into the stands in time for kick-off at 2.30pm. 
The game itself was a real treat with Bath Rugby eventually coming out 33-32 winners.  As the scoreline suggests, it was a nail biting affair with makeshift fly-half James Wilson holding his nerve to convert Zach Mercer’s try with 30 seconds remaining.  The result keeps Bath Rugby firmly in contention for the play-offs.
It was then back to the Ricoh Suite with our guests for a delicious cheeseboard and the screening of the Scotland v England Six Nations game.  The less said about the result the better for the English contingent, although this certainly did not dampen the spirits of those that attended.  It is certainly fair to say that a thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all.
