Been a tough few weeks in the football world with Fabrice Muamba’s collapse, Eric Abidal needing a kidney transplant and now the terribly sad news that Former Celtic legend and Aston Villa Captain Stiliyan Petrov has been diagnosed with acute leukaemia. Being a huge soccer fan and a massive Celtic fan it comes a big shock. My best wishes are with Stan and his family through this tough time and I pray that he gets better soon. WE LOVE YOU STAN!!
GET WELL SOON STAN, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A BHOY IN MY EYES XX
Tuesday the 20th of March was a national holiday here in Japan so Footy Japan had organised another of it’s Charity 7’s competitions.
My friend Keith asked me to play with him and his work mates from Robert Half here in Tokyo.
Here we are trying to look as professional as possible…
Was a really cracking day, weather was brilliant and there were a lot of great matches on throughout the day.
We managed to qualify for the Cup after the group phase and after coming from behind in the 1/4 finals we won a tense penalty shootout 🙂 We faced Swiss Kickers in the semi’s but a day of soccer with no subs had taken it’s toll and we were beaten quite easily but I think we done very well considering 🙂
Great day altogether and it’s for a great cause so i’d like to thank Footy Japan and YC&AC for hosting another great event.
Thanks to Fay for the photo 🙂
