The 30th July this summer will mark the 50th anniversary of England winning the World Cup and numerous events will be taking place to recognise this.

No one will surely need reminding that the late Bobby Moore was the victorious captain that sunny day in 1966. Despite the never to be forgotten images of the historic event and all the accolades Bobby was to receive personally and collectively, later in life he unfortunately succumbed to bowel cancer, hence why his wife Stephanie set up the Fund in his name and still works tirelessly on behalf of the charity and Cancer Research UK to defeat this disease too in his memory. The National League wishes to do something tangible, yet meaningful and simple, to join in with the 50th celebrations we will be holding a collection this Saturday during the home game against Bath City.

The national League has a long standing association with the Bobby Moore Cancer Fund and that it operates in the name of one of the most revered names in the game world-wide. We wish to undertake a match day collection to raise funds towards this worthwhile cause.
