Charity Footie Game on Wideopen FC 3G
In memory of Andy Robinson
Friday 4th November 2016

Wideopen Football Club is very happy to support the use of their 3G for good causes such as this.
A little about Andy Robinson of Consett, Co Durham. Andy was only 36 years old when he passed after a brave battle against Cancer. He started at Newcastle International Airport in April 1999 in the Security dept. as a Security officer, working his way up to Airport Duty Manager. He met and married Natalie who also worked at the airport and they had two children.
Andy used to play on the Security/Terminal team against the Fire/AOU team for many years, in all weathers and was a consistent player, renowned for 'Megging' the opposition before a mazy run and finish.
It seemed a fitting tribute to have a memorial game and trophy in his name for all the current and ex-players to get together and donate to a charity associated with his family. The first game was held in Dec 14 and continuing on to this day where all proceeds raised go to the Willowburn Hospice (Derwentside Hospice) www.willow-burn.co.uk in County Durham.
Everyone involved would like to add a massive thanks to all the committee at Wideopen Football Club; especially John, also Keith, Chris and of course Warick for setting it all up and making the occasion such a huge success.
