Tottenham football legends to play in St Albans charity match for Macmillan Cancer Support
Legends from Tottenham Hotspur are set to take on BAM Nuttall in a charity football match in St Albans to raise money for a cancer charity.
Mark Falco, David Howells, Chris Perry and Justin Edinburgh are part of the Spurs Legends squad expected to play BAM Nuttall XI on Sunday, April 28 at St Albans City Football Club.
John Murphy, from international civil engineering company BAM Nuttall, organised the match in aid of the Macmillan Cancer Support said: "Many of us have been affected by Cancer whether it is someone we know or have experienced personally, and we wanted to do something to help support the wonderful work the Macmillan Cancer Support carries out.
"We really hope that people turn out in force to support this family event and I am grateful to my friends and colleagues for the enthusiasm that they have shown in supporting this event - they all want to play in our BAM team.
"It’s a great opportunity to see some famous players and to raise money for such a worthy cause which has meant so much to us. He added special thanks to John McGowan, Co-owner of St Albans City FC and everyone at the club for hosting the match which kicks off at 2pm.
Kerry Briars, Hertfordshire fundraising manager, said: "We cannot thank John and the organisers enough for choosing to support Macmillan Cancer Support this year. The money that is raised really will make a difference to the lives of people living with cancer."
Last year Macmillan raised over £150 million and Ms Briars said they hope to raise more to support the family and friends of the people living with cancer.
Money from events will contribute to services across Hertfordshire, including the Information and Support Centre at Watford General Hospital.
