Members of the Fleetwood Town Business Club took part in a charity friendly match against a special FTFC All Stars XI at Highbury Stadium on Friday evening.
Club president Jim Betmead managed the side filled with Town’s former players – including his son Dan who wore the number two shirt on the night. The players who helped the club rise up through the non-league pyramid were captained by Jamie Milligan, a player all Town fans will remember.
The Business Club side, which consisted of Business Club members and club sponsors, played valiantly throughout the 90 minutes and gave it their all for the spectators at the event, even though they did lose 10-3. A notable moment was a wonder striker from Brett Dawson, from Hesketh Press, that flew play former Town goalkeeper Danny Hurst.
All spectators, and players, enjoyed a charity prize-draw raffle in the Parkside Suite. The night was a complete success as the event helped us raise over £2000 for the two charities - Mind Lancashire and Men’s Shed Fleetwood.
Martin Booker, Head of Commercial, said after the event: “It was another great event at Highbury with our business club members raising funds for two great local causes supporting mental health.
“The former players were great on the night and it was a decent game played in great spirit. Thanks to everyone who supported the event - it’s something everyone looks forward too at the end of each season.”
Fleetwood Town would like to thank all of the former players and the members of the Business Club for playing in the match, Rachel Wilson for here photographs of the event and the local charities present who helped raise money throughout the event.
