We were humbled to be contacted by Saddlers fan David Pearson who has been given the chance of a lifetime to play against Walsall Legends on the hallowed Banks’s turf on 22nd May.
David had this to say:
‘I have been given a once in a lifetime opportunity by CAT communications to play at the Banks’s Stadium on the 22nd May against a team of Walsall legends including: David Kelly, Chris March, Mark Kinsella, Zigor Aranalde, Dean Smith and Richard O`Kelly’
‘Walsall FC means so much to me as my Dad took me to watch my first Walsall game when I was two years old, he later took me to my first match. I remember at the Millennium Stadium for the Play Off Final. He sadly took his own life in 2003 when I was 14 and I continue to support Walsall in his memory. His hero was David Kelly and to be playing against him is a huge honour’
‘As I live in Torquay with my children it is difficult for me to get to every match but we still manage to get to around 5-10 games a season.’
‘The game is raising funds for the Last Chance Hotel who are an animal rescue charity and is also supporting Kris Taylor`s charity Balls to Cancer and you can donate by coming to the game on 22nd May 7:30 KO or you can donate via my just giving page’
We at Vital Walsall encourage as many viewers to turn up and support the fans and the legends. We also encourage you to donate via the facility above in support of David as he conquers a life good dream in the aid of raising money for charity.
