26 North West players and 4 staff from the North West born 1996 boys teams are away this weekend are in Balisdon in the Inter Regions Championships. They will be wearing pink in support of Sheena who has worked with the North West over the last year on sport science and was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.
The boys will be wearing a band of pink and a band of purple on their arm along with a pink t-shirt promoting The Linda McCartney Centre where Sheena is being treated. She is Fundraising for the Centre via Sport, and has raised nearly £3,000 with her first 3 Events with 5 more to come. She has set up “Sport Supports The Linda McCartney Centre” and welcomes you to join the Facebook Group and Follow on Twitter, where future fundraisers involving Signed Olympic/Elite Athlete Kit will be exclusively announced.
Yesterday on Sheena Facebook page she wrote the following:
“SPORT SUPPORTS EXCLUSIVE!!!! The! North West Water Polo Raven & Tiger Teams will be playing with Pink & Purple Armbands and wearing SPORT SUPPORTS THE LINDA MCCARTNEY CENTRE t-shirts at their Inter Region Competition in Basildon this weekend.
It is with great honor that I can say I have worked with the guys, & they are a committed work-hard Squad, that know the importance of playing right to the final second. This was evident during their Tournament Victory last year, when I completed my Victory “Swim” with the Team. “Yeeeehhhhhh Buddy” – that one’s for you Andrew Robinson
All the best for the weekend guys, looking forward to all the updates and pink-filled pictures. And don’t forget, Subs…. what do you do when there’s a goal??? _ _ _ _ _
I cannot thank you enough for offering to do this for me, it has made my week.
PS Zak Sly, gutted I can’t be there to get sent off (again)for shouting tactical advice during the matches ha ha ha”
