“I listen to Danny Baker’s show each weekend and when I heard of the scheme I thought we should promote it to all the teams as we are in a unique position to help. “Leisure Leagues run leagues in Burntwood and have around 350 players, so if we can get some money raised for this brilliant cause that would be superb.”Andy, a Stoke City season ticket holder, refused to be drawn as to whether he would wear a Port Vale top for charity. He joked:
“I might consider beating anyone’s pledge by a pound so I don’t have to do that!”Leisure Leagues also have a signed Birmingham City football that they are auctioning for Sport Relief and anyone who wants to pledge for Shirt of Hurt, or bid for this special item, can email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the leagues – which take place at Burntwood Leisure Centre on Sundays and Mondays – can ring 0845 230 2340 or visit www.leisureleagues.net.
