West Hamilton AFC player Kevin Bryers will never forget the support he has received from the staff at the Beatson Cancer Unit which he now plans to raise funds for with a Charity game – and would welcome the support of Scottish senior clubs to support the idea.
Kevin made contact with myself and asked “Is there any way you guys can help (with publicity ) that would be great.”
“I was diagnosed last year with Cancer and the Beatson has been amazing. It was a tough fight.”
“I’m currently in remission at the moment and have to attend the Beatson for the next 5 years, but holding this event is my way of giving something back, plus you meet loads of people who are going through the same thing too, and they rely on funding. This is why I’m trying to make the event as big as I can.”
“West Hamilton are involved as they gave me the chance to get back into football again plus I’m planning to play in goals 1 half with Team Beatson, and the other half with West Hamilton.”
“We have Hamilton Accies on board, and also the Old Firm.”
“Venue has still to be decided. I am in talks with a number of clubs and they are on going.”
Thanks to Kevin for his story and also to Gerry Lennon at West Hamilton AFC for making contact and providing another angle!
