Cheerleaders, mascots and games will add plenty of cheer to a football match being held to raise funds for a severely injured youngster.

Stamford-based One Touch Football has organised the game between coaches and Peterborough United legends to help nine-year-old Seb Goold and his family afford a top-of-the-range prosthetic leg.

Keen sportsman Seb, from Wansford, had to have his right leg amputated above the knee after falling from a moving coach in April last year.

His family set up the Seb Goold Trust to raise funds for the prosthesis and allow the Stamford Junior School pupil to play the sports he loves once again.

Seb’s coach at One Touch Football Scott McKenzie has been busy organising the charity match, which will take place at Stamford AFC’s Borderville ground on Sunday, March 22.

He said: “We’ve now got the London Cheerleaders coming up, and they are going to do a performance before the game and at half time. They will be going round with collection buckets.

“Some of the Posh first team squad will be there. We’ve got inflatables for the kids, and Mick the Skip and the Posh mascot will also be there causing havok as usual.”

Seb and his brother Ben will manage the team of dads and coaches, and the pair have already led a couple of training sessions.

“Seb said we were shocking,” joked Scott. “But he’s looking forward to the game, he really is.

“The way he took to managing, he wasn’t frightened to shout at all the dads and tell them what’s what.”

The game kicks off at 2pm, with activities through the afternoon.
