I am proud to be participating inThe Celebrity Football Charity Challenge, a “pro-am” style fundraising match at Hensley Athletic Field, Eastgardens, to be played at 5.30pm ahead of the Eastern Suburbs’ men’s senior first division Grand Final. A slew of stars will join forces to kick a goal in the fight against epilepsy.
Supported by both Eastern Suburbs Football Association (ESFA) and Sydney FC, the match will combine celebrity players with sponsored amateurs – all raising funds for the cause.
Please donate now for this fantastic cause!
Former Northern Ireland youth international, Terry McFlynn, started his professional career in Britain, before signing for Sydney FC. The midfield anchor proved a success at the Sydney-based giants, making 214 league appearances, including a lengthy period as club captain.
The Northern Irish footballer had spells at Queens Park Rangers, Woking, Margate and Morecambe, in the lower leagues of English football. It was in 2005 that McFlynn followed the advice of former teammate Chris Zoricich, and moved to Sydney in pursuit of a career Down Under.
Announcing his retirement from professional football in April of this year, the midfielder showed his loyalty to Sydney FC, rejecting a number of other A-league clubs. Signing for Bonnyrigg White Eagles in the New South Wales Premier League, and becoming head of player welfare at Sydney FC, it looks as if McFlynn will remain involved in football for years to come.
