On 19th October, Darke Engineering had the opportunity to give 2 of its employees the chance to play a football game at Wembley Stadium. 

The Play on the Pitch experience is only offered to Club Wembley members, in which members enter a ballot and Darke Engineering was allocated 2 spaces. 

Mitch Leggett and Stan Hardy, both avid sports fans, travelled to Wembley Stadium to take part in the football match which was attended by football legends Teddy Sheringham and Rachel Yankey.

Both Mitch and Stan played fantastically, taking advantage of the chance to play on famous ground and at the end of the game Stan was awarded man of the match! This was presented by Teddy Sheringham and Rachel Yankey.

Darke Engineering strongly believes in giving back to its employees and it’s a pleasure to have given Mitch and Stan the opportunity to play at a stadium as spectacular as Wembley.

Mitch Leggett commented:

“It was great to get the opportunity to play in Wembley stadium on a pitch I’ve only ever seen from the top tier or at home on the sofa! The whole experience was surreal from sitting in the changing rooms, walking out the tunnel, playing on the famous grass and then making the walk to the top to be presented with my own piece of Wembley history. A truly special experience that I am very thankful to Club Wembley and Darke Engineering for.“
