Fancy Dresslemania XI

A month ago tomorrow seven Maidenhead United fans walked well in excess of 17 miles - on the then hottest day of the year - to/ from York Road, Maidenhead, and Hill Farm Lane, Binfield, in order to attend the game between Binfield Reserves and Maidenhead United Reserves.

As this was the last away game of the season, tradition dictated that we went in Fancy Dress! We asked for sponsorship; all funds raised going directly to Parkinson's UK, a charity who for more than 40 years have been working to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

So far, over £1K has been donated (more than 200% of our original target) and I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who took part and everyone who has donated; from those at Binfield FC (who were very welcoming hosts on the day) to MUFC Ltd luminaries Johnson Hippolyte and Peter Griffin, plus countless others.

Here's hoping the Fixture Computer Abacus is kind and Fancy Dresslemania XII takes place at somewhere like Truro or Weston-super-Mare. We won't be walking to either of those, though!

PS. Maidenhead United Reserves won the match 1-0 (if anyone is interested??)
