Bucket collection reveals again the generosity of Angels supporters

A total of £400.00 was raised at our last home game against Harlow Town on Saturday 25th March for Chasing Connor's Cure

Connor Crawford aged 5 was one of our match mascots and is unfortunately suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which currently has no cure. As part of his special day a collection was organised to assist in attempting to find a cure for this terrible condition.

The result on the pitch may not have been we had all hoped for, but football sometimes needs to be put into perspective, and to see the joy on Connor's face when he met all the players made it a special afternoon for a very brave little boy.

Many of you will have seen a fantastic Tweet from Connor's parents thanking everyone. The club would like to add its own thanks to all who gave so generously.

Also a mention should go to Dan Barden, one of the club's sponsors, who is giving the Crawford family such terrific support through his company DS Barden Building Contractors Ltd.

One of our match mascots who will be leading the teams for our home game against Harlow Town on 25th March will be Connor Crawford aged five ; a typical lively little boy who enjoys sports and in particular loves football through following his favourite team, Chelsea. But tragically Connor is different; he suffers from a life limiting muscle wasting condition called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy for which there is currently no cure. By the time he reaches the age of 10 he will likely be wheelchair bound and his heart and lungs will eventually fail him probably in his early 20's.
