Thomas Cook help fans live the dream

Cup Final day also saw fierce competition for the Thomas Cook Fans Trophy on the pitch at the City of Manchester Stadium.
Thomas Cook sponsored the 7-a-side competition to mark the end of their highly successful six year association with the club. Seven fans' teams were selected at random from hundreds of entries to compete alongside a media team. The lucky winners were: Paul Howard, Phil Hume, Paul Mahoney, Paul Atherton, Paul Keogh, Steve Charnock and Scott Elliott.
It was a fantastic day that culminated in Paul Keogh’s team being victorious, and having the opportunity to play against a former players' team that included Peter Barnes and Kenny Clements.
After the event, a buffet and drinks was enjoyed by all in the Mancunian Suite, with the opportunity to watch the FA Cup Final.
Danny Talbot, Managing Director at Thomas Cook Sport, said: “To football fans, getting to play on your team's pitch is the ultimate dream. Our six years as official sponsor of Manchester City have been a memorable journey, and sponsoring the tournament was our way of saying a final 'thank you' to the fans for all their support.”
Congratulations to Paul and his team once again!
