Shepherd and Wedderburn advised Goals Soccer Centres plc in relation to its £11.4 million placing of new ordinary shares by way of an accelerated bookbuild.  Goals is a well-respected brand with a national footprint of 43 5-a-side soccer centres across the UK, hosting over 100,000 players every week, resulting in a 42 per cent share of the branded 5-a-side market.  

Michael Wylie led the team at Shepherd and Wedderburn on this deal which will see the proceeds of this placing improve the Company’s capital structure and provide sufficient funds to accelerate the controlled roll-out of new sites in the UK and US.

Goals Soccer Managing Director, Keith Rogers was full of praise for the team, commenting “S&W were excellent – no ‘faffing about’ (legalese) and got the work done with minimum fuss.”
