Press Release from Wembley Stallions
The Wembley Stallions fixture against London Hornets on Sunday, 7th of July will take on an extra significance. As well as being one of British American Football’s biggest derbies the gridiron clash will feature a charity day for former Stallion Abbas Sowaiden.
The Linebacker tragically passed away last June after losing his battle with bone cancer at just 16 years old. He was just one the seven young people in the UK diagnosed with cancer every single day.
The Stallions will be supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust with a special family fun day. As well as two games of American Football, as the Stallions U’19s take on the Cambridge Cats U’19s, there will be a barbecue, face painting, bouncy castle and more.
Stallions Head Coach Warren Smart said: “We are proud to support the Teenage Cancer Trust and the tremendous care and support they provide for young people before, during and after cancer diagnosis.
He added: “Abbas had a huge passion for the game and we will continue to remember him at the club. I hope people will come and show support for him and the charity on Sunday”
The fun day starts from noon on Sunday, 7th of July at the London Post Office Sports and Social Association, 136 Greenford Rd, Harrow HA1 3QL.
Entry is just £2.00 and free for U18s. Those attending are asked to wear red both to show support for the Stallions and also to remember our team-mate.
