At last Saturday’s game against AFC Blackpool, 1874 Northwich were pleased to be visited by Alfie Lund and his dad Mark, who were raising funds and awareness of a rare life limiting condition called Mecp2 Duplication syndrome and also displaying part of their amazing football memorabilia collection.
After the game Mark posted several photographs from the day on the fund’s Facebook page along with the message “ Many thanks to all at 1874 Northwich today for their support flags were out loads of donations from all at the club total respect and you have the best pies in non league as well we all had a great day.”
Mark also tweeted “ Many thanks to all @1874Northwich fantastic day a really top club great support from all respect @alfielundfund .”
Saturday was the 96th and final game on their 2 season quest to amass the largest chain of football memorabilia – shirts, scarves, flags – which will in the coming months be displayed at Skelmersdale United’s ground where it will be measured on the pitch and hopefully a new world record will be set and submitted to the Guinness book of World Records. Once the chain has been measured the plan is to sell off/auction as much of the chain as possible with all money raised going directly to Mecp2 Duplication UK.
Once again many thanks to everyone involved with our special football club, players, officials and supporters, who contributed to the collection or donated shirts.
