WYRE Forest-based OGL Computer sponsored Aston Villa’s match against Newcastle, taking 45 members of its sales and support teams as a thank you for their performance in 2012.

The OGL staff had a champagne reception before taking a tour of Villa Park, followed by a variety of presentations, including meeting the referee and current and former players.

Neil Morris, operations director at OGL, said: “We had a fantastic experience at Villa Park from start to finish and our staff were treated like royalty.

“We wanted to say thank you to the members of the sales and support teams for delivering such good results last year and this was certainly a memorable occasion.” Newcastle won the game 2-1.
