Ex-footballers help net �50,000 for Willow Foundation
FORMER international footballing stars met together last week to form a squad good enough for any World Cup.
Paul Merson, Alan Smith, Lee Dixon, Tony Cottee, Ossie Ardiles, Ricky Villa, Les Ferdinand, Nigel Winterburn, Bob Wilson and Martin Chivers, were just a few of the legends in the line-up.
However they were not wanted for their soccer skills on this occasion but for the 11th annual Willow Foundation celebrity golf day at Brocket Hall, in Lemsford.
In total they, with more than 100 guests, raised �50,000 for the charity, which provides special days for seriously ill young adults, in memory of Bob Wilson’s daughter Anna, who died of cancer aged 31.
On the day a range of big prizes up were for grabs including a luxury golf holiday to Cyprus and a host of unique sporting memorabilia.
