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!

Weekly Roundup 25th March

Hi all, it’s our weekly round-up post to say thank you to those who have held an event or participated in a sponsored event for us and to let you know what you can look forward to next week! As always, we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who is mentioned below, for those who have attended/supported and for everyone who has made a donation no matter what size. We appreciate you all

We are adding more and more events to our calendar so please take a look on this to see what’s going on in the next week at Upcoming Events.

This week was our first #getinvolved event – #BakeForEdie. There were bake sales being held across Wirral, in Liverpool, Cheshire, Cardiff and further afield. The current known total is £4661.73 with more figures to be confirmed yet! This has surpassed our original hopes and we are thrilled with how many people got involved with this so thank you all! (Photos that we’ve collected are below!)

Friday saw the start of AquaSafe’s sponsored swims during their lessons and this has carried on all weekend (more sponsored swims on Thursday this week too). The children swam the width of the Mersey (younger swimmers did this as a group effort). We want to say a huge well done to all of the children and thank you to everyone who sponsored them!

On Friday we also had a group of volunteers who were down at Morrisons in New Brighton, bag packing. They raised £466.54! Thank you to all who volunteered in particular Lorraine who we believe stayed there all day!

Yesterday Bernie Miller and friends ran in the Chain Runners event that took place in Wirral, raising over £600. Well done all involved!

Today we had the long awaited Princess and Superhero event at the Octel Club in Bromborough. Yet again we had an amazing turn out and we also had amazing weather to go with it! Everyone seemed to be having a great time and £2798.90 has been raised!

The Liverpool 1/2 marathon was run today by Steve Copeland, Debbie Rowlands and Andrea Dillon, and the 10 mile road race was completed by Karl Horgan. Well done to all for completing these races!

Finally, today, Richie Hellon started his huge walk from Tranmere Rovers to Dover Athletic. He left at 6am this morning and will arrive in Dover on Friday. If you see him on your travels give him a beep or a hello if you can safely!

We also want to say thanks to the parents of the Shaftes youth teams, who collected over £250 for Grandad Chris to photograph 4 games. Also, to the Dock AFC, who collected over £700 during a pool competition and football quiz.

Next week our main events are
The Edie Molyneux Charity Fundraiser at the Gladstone Theatre, with Ricky Tomlinson hosting and featuring Charlie Landsborough. We hope those who have tickets have a brilliant time!

Then for the Easter weekend we kick off with a golf tournament at Prenton golf club (no spaces left for golfing but you’re welcome to attend the evening event there), and then on Easter Sunday we have events at the Rose & Crown in Wallasey and the Woodchurch Pub.

There is also a neon light walk taking place on Tuesday evening over in Gayton, run by Lucy’s Pineapple fund but fundraising for both children. So if you fancy a Neon lighted evening walk for charity, check out their event on this.

Again, all events going on can be found on our events page!
