Celebrity footballers tee off at Shooters Hill golf day in memory of cancer victim
Celebrity footballers teed off at a Shooters Hill golf day in memory of the son of former Millwall and Charlton goalkeeper Nicky Johns
CELEBRITY footballers teed off at a Shooters Hill golf day in memory of the son of a former Millwall and Charlton goalkeeper.
The fifth annual golf day was held to raise funds in the fight against bowel cancer after goalie Nicky Johns’ son Stephen died from the disease aged just 26.
Mark Bright, Tony Cascarino and Steve Gritt were amongst the sporting heroes who helped drum up more than £3,000 for charity at Shooters Hill Golf Club on September 19.
Father-of-three Mr Johns, 56, told News Shopper: “The day was absolutely brilliant.
"It was well supported by former playing colleagues from Charlton, Millwall, Ipswich, with players travelling down from The Midlands.
“The support I have received from the football world since Stephen has been brilliant.”
He went on to say England and Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard sends an England t-shirt signed by the squad each year.
The cash raised will go to The Mr Brightside Project which was set up by Stephen’s family to raise awareness of bowel cancer and end the myth that the disease only affects older people.
