Ireland Draw in England - Twice!

The 29th May saw the Ireland football team return to Wembley stadium for the first time in 22 years. The last time the two teams played a friendly match in 1995, riots between opposing fans caused the match to be abandoned, casting a long-lasting shadow over Irish football. This important match has helped to bury the memories of that fateful day and create a new generation of footballing heroes.

Staff at Twistfix were thrilled to meet Alan Kelly, goalkeeper for Ireland in the abandoned match of 1995, when he visited our office to draw the winner of our exciting 'Win an iPad Mini' competition. As well as playing for Ireland, Alan has also represented Preston, Sheffield United and Blackburn Rovers football clubs and is now the Irish goalkeeping coach. Alan, pictured with Technical Manager Ray Evans, was very pleased and excited to be visiting Manchester before heading to London for the match, which resulted in a 1-1 draw.

The Twistfix 'Win an iPad Mini' competition was open to any customer spending £300 on items from our comprehensive selection of basement waterproofing products. Over six weeks up until 30th April, the number of entrants gradually grew to the final total of 128 companies and individuals entered into the draw. Alan made the draw at random and the lucky winner was builder Ken Lyons, an experienced basement conversion contractor based in Rainham, Essex. Ken works extensively in and around the London area and chooses Twistfix waterproofing membrane products due to their high levels of quality coupled with competitive trade prices and dedicated customer service. The iPad Mini has been dispatched to Ken and Twistfix would like to offer our congra­tula­tions.
