We received this request via our website this morning and feel it's a worthy cause to have on our pages. We are extremely pleased that John has chosen Takeley FC to start him on his route and hopefully we will be with him at the final !!!!
A word from John below:-
"Hi fellow Footy fans! A 'Gooner' for my sins lol, I'm embarking on a ‘Road to Wembley’ challenge this season, starting with the FA Cup’s initial round and have chosen ‘Takeley v Hadleigh Utd'. I’ll stay with the 'winner' of each round and hopefully end up at the Final @ Wembley on 17.5.2014. I'm raising funds en route, for MGA (Myasthenia Gravis Association). My Daughter suffers with this condition that causes severe muscle weakness and fatigue. I’d be grateful for any donations please to this very worthwhile cause, to: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/jb2014facup Watch out for my blog, soon to be published, so you can track my progress to Wembley. Many thanks. John (JB)"
