Each year Street Soccer Academy, a Bolton-based charity, runs a 24 hour football match to raise funds for the work it does, helping the rehabilitation and reintegration of people with complex and multiple needs. And every year, the team at go2 Telecom slap on their shorts, polish their boots and take part.

"Real go2"

Previously some members of Team go2 have undertaken in the full 24 hour match but this year – blaming dodgy knees and previous, unspecified engagements – played for only two hours. Still managing to raise £1,500 in the process.

In total, ten players wore the go2 Telecom shirts with pride, playing 2 matches, scoring 15 goals, and recording a win and a defeat.

“Real go2” – as absolutely nobody called them – were led by skipper David Ratcliffe, who said: “It’s been a great effort by all the lads. The supporters said it was like watching Bale, Ronaldo and Messi at times. We gave it 110 per cent on the pitch, leaving nothing in reserve and there are some tired legs out there now.
“Our boots are now back on their pegs, and we’re off for a curry.”
