Pierce looked to be having a fun time during the day out in which he greeted his fellow players with a warm handshake before kicking off the game.  

Prior to his day out, Pierce told how Connery was his ‘greatest James Bond‘ while growing up, before taking on the legendary role himself years later.

Alongside a black and white image of Connery, Pierce wrote: ‘Sir Sean Connery, you were my greatest James Bond as a boy, and as a man who became James Bond himself. You cast a long shadow of cinematic splendour that will live on forever.

‘You led the way for us all who followed in your iconic foot steps. Each man in his turn looked to you with reverence and admiration as we forged ahead with our own interpretations of the role.
