Conveyancing partner Andy Roscoe recently captained Wales in the first ever Tri Nations Trophy of FootGolf.

How many law firms can claim to have an international sportsperson in their ranks?  Well, we now can!  Conveyancing partner Andy Roscoe recently captained Wales in the first ever Tri Nations Trophy in the popular and fast-growing sport of FootGolf.

FootGolf is, quite simply, what it says on the tin.  Usually played on a customised golf course, the aim of the game is to kick a football into a 21-inch hole in as few shots as possible.

Andy is currently ranked in the Top 100 in the UK, and qualifies to play for Wales through his ancestry.  He was approached by UK FootGolf to spearhead the team in their first ever international match, taking on England and Scotland in a team event on the eve of the FootGolf Welsh Open at Silver Birch Golf Club in North Wales.

The result didn’t quite go Andy’s way, with Wales finishing 3rd behind Scotland and the might of England who featured the World Number Ones in both Mens and Ladies FootGolf, but it was an experience of a lifetime for our colleague, and Andy is hopeful that it will only serve to assist the growth of the sport.

If you’re interested in trying FootGolf, feel free to contact Andy for a bit of advice.
