At our recent reunion of the ’93 squad that conquered Crystal Palace in the FA Cup, one of the squad members – Lenny Johnrose – was unable to attend. Recently we found out why, and this was due to Lenny very sadly being diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND).
Despite now living across the country the lads from the squad remain close, and they have been in touch with HUST and they would like us to help them to organise another get together for the squad and their families to allow them show their support to one of their team mates. They have asked if we can help them pull together an event to reunite the squad again, and would welcome the involvement of any fans of Hartlepool United, and those whose loved ones may have been affected by MND to come together to help them raise some money for this cause. While HUST is helping to facilitate this event all proceeds from the evening will be donated by the lads to MND charities.
More details will be made available about the event in due course.
