Dozens of young footballers will come together tomorrow for a charity tournament in support of four-year-old Lucas White who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).

The mini-tournament for Lucas, 4, has been organised by Romford-based amateur football club Flyers FC and will help raise funds for his treatment.

DMD is life-limiting and muscle wasting condition and head coach Richard Brett wants show as much support for Lucas as possible.

“We should all realise how lucky we are,” said Richard. “When you read Lucas’s story, you will understand what a brave little boy he is and we want to try and support him as much as we can whilst raising awareness for DMD.”

The event will take place at 10am on Saturday, in King George Playing Fields, Eastern Avenue, Romford, for young children under 8 through under 13.

Contact Richard on 07501-512441 or via email rcbrett1@yahoo.co.uk to join a team.
