Groundsman Liam pitches to win dream wedding

Figure image
Senior groundsman Liam Ward is asking for the Tigers Family's help in winning a dream wedding day for him and his fiancée Gemma Dewey.

Liam is a key member of the groundstaff at Tigers, looking after the Welford Road playing surface and the pitches at the club’s Oval Park training ground.
The 35-year-old and Gemma are one of 100 couples shortlisted in the Leicester Mercury’s Win a Wedding competition.
Up for grabs is a £10,000 package at Leicestershire’s Sketchley Grange Hotel and Spa – with the winning couple based purely on votes. The more votes that Liam and Gemma receive the more likely they are to win – and that’s where Tigers fans can help.
“It would mean the world to us to win,” says Liam. “It would be amazing to win and would make a fantastic day even more special.
To vote for Liam and Gemma, enter the couple’s name and unique reference number on voting coupons that are being printed in the Leicester Mercury every day until Saturday, November 8. In Liam and Gemma’s case the unique reference number is 1022.
Send voting coupons and registration forms to Welford Road stadium, Aylestone Road, Leicester LE2 7TR, drop them in at reception at Welford Road or Win a Wedding, Leicester Mercury, St George Street, Leicester LE1 9FQ.
“We have already had some great support and are so grateful for everyone’s help,” said Liam - before heading off to get the pitch ready for Saturday’s European Rugby Champions Cup clash with Ulster Rugby!
