MTA – Mobile Travel Agents co-managing directors, Karen and Roy Merricks scored a couple of personal goals when they met members of the Manchester City team at Cbus Stadium at Robina on the Gold Coast last week.
The MTA co-MD's met the players while attending a function organised by Etihad Airways, the Manchester club's major sponsor since 2009, at the Gold Coast stadium where the English Premier League team was in training for its clash with Melbourne Victory on the weekend.
Karen is pictured with several members of the team including skipper Vincent Kompany (on far right) and the club's record breaking signing, Raheem Sterling (second from left).
Roy too had the opportunity for a one-on-one with Sterling who recently transferred from Liverpool FC to the 'Sky Blues' for a staggering £49 million (AUD130 million).
