Edie’s 11 vs Hollyoaks – Match Report

Edie's Football team plus some of the Hollyoaks cast, crew and friends.

On Friday 11th May, Edie’s 11 vs Hollyoaks cast played at Ashville Football Club in Wallasey. Edie’s 11, (managed by Edie’s uncle Joe Sephton and cousin Kev King) are a group of local lads who are close to Edie and her family, or have been heavily involved in fundraising and holding their own events in aid of the Spider-Ede Appeal.

42010029052_0db0d6a2e7_z8 members of the Hollyoaks cast played along with crew and friends to make up the numbers. One well known name was I’m a Celebrity 2017’s Jamie Lomas, who previously played Warren Fox in the soap. It is safe to say the fans were thrilled when he pulled up to Ashville FC and happily got some photos and signed some autographs!

41154089125_8ee4165945_zAnother well known cast member, Nic Pickard, was also present. Nic plays Tony Hutchinson and is the longest-serving cast member and appeared in the first episode in 1995. Nic played a massive part in helping to arrange the match and we could not thank him enough for his help.

42010016182_1acc7b0ef5_zDuayne Boachie, who plays Zak Loveday, was the Spider-Ede Appeal’s Man of the Match. His football skills were just as good as his acting skills and the award was well deserved!

Both Duayne and Parry Glasspool, screen name Harry Thompson, proved a hit with the fans and couldn’t get to their seats without having a queue of ladies requesting a photograph.

41333907434_63b0e360e2_zLuke Jerdy was one of Hollyoak’s star players, who is best known as Jesse Donovan in the soap.

David Kennedy, who plays Dirk Savage, also took part. It didn’t go un-noticed that he enjoyed the delicious curry at the end of the match more than he enjoyed the game!

40246453600_1acc7b0ef5_zThe full time score was 6-4 to Edie’s 11 who proudly took home the winners trophy. The trophy was presented on the night to Ian McGraa and Lee Gibson, both local rival Sunday league football managers who chose to wear the opposite football shirt in the evening for sponsorship, to raise more funds for Edie’s treatment.

Our officials on the day were Aidan Jones, Steve Copeland and Merril Grundy, who kindly donated their Friday night to the charity match.

42010017732_9cb87a16d0_zDJ Steve Lord provided brilliant commentary and music before, during and after the match. Liam Kelly was dressed up as Spider-Man to grab photos with the children and adults alike, Louise Lord and Anna Mcallister also brought their amazing cakes to sell, alongside Joan Janvier selling sweet cones and Claire Jardine Jones selling raffle tickets, all to raise additional funds.

We’d also like to say thank you to Proactive Personnel Ltd, Neil Hayes Painting & Decorating, Haworth and Gallagher Solicitors, and AquaSafe Swim School for their sponsorship towards the event.

The night was a success and we raised in excess of £2500!

Keep your eyes peeled for the return of Edie’s 11 in their next football match!
