The 27 year old raised over £45,000 for local children’s hospice Francis House, in 2013, and put Manchester on the map with a new Guinness World Record for the Longest Marathon Playing Football, lasting 72 hours.

A huge thank you to MIMA and Future Pro-Manchester, for deeming us worthy of this prestigious accolade. Without the support of lots of wonderful people, and 35 unbreakable amateur footballers, none of this would’ve been possible.
Special mention to all of the many event sponsors, Francis House Children’s Hospice, Trafford Community Leisure Trust, Stretford High School and most of all the amazing people of Manchester.”
