Ferndown based, Queens Park Athletic AFC recently held a benefit match to raise awareness of leukaemia and show support for assistant manager Mark ‘Sammo’ Samson who is courageously battling the cancer.
The #Score4Sammo benefit match was held at Poole Borough FC’s, Turlin Moor ground on Sunday 19 April.
Queens Park Athletic FC took on a Mark Samson All Star Team, captained by his son Ryan and made up of friends and former team mates of the popular ex-Wimborne Town, Poole Borough and Queens Park defender.
AFC Bournemouth legend Steve Fletcher was guest of honour and played 90 minutes for the Allstars and donated his boots to a fund raising raffle held after the match. Other prizes included signed football memorabilia supplied by Poole Town’s Robbie Yates and Ex-AFC Bournemouth player John Sainty.
The raffle and donations raised over £1000 for the #Score4Sammo fund.
