Highlights Of Sunday’s Match For MND


If you haven’t seen them, the club have put out extended highlights of Sunday’s charity match for MND.

Wanderers’ current crop, albeit with some understandable rotation, ran out 7-4 winners against a team of past greats, on a day where the club rallied around for the family of Gethin Jones – whose mother had been diagnosed with the disease.

I couldn’t make it myself, but a good chunk of Sunday evening was just spent seeing a lot of photos and videos from the day – and just smiling. Whether it was Jay-Jay dancing with Big Sam again, or seeing Ivan Campo pose with photos with fans, or players meeting each other once again, it just seemed like a really fun day, and for 13,000 fans to be able to turn up for the occasion just showed what a club we are, especially after a few years under an owner that would never have sanctioned anything like this.

You also have to laugh at Ian Evatt, a former centre half, taking the number 10 shirt for the day, having being vacated by Antoni Sarcevic’s departure, and promptly going on to score a hat-trick.
