Charity Game For Hospital That Saved Ex-NCEL Boss

5th October, 2005

Football legend Peter Lorimer is just one of the Leeds United stars of yesteryear who has promised to turn out to help raise funds for the neuro-surgery unit at Leeds General Infirmary that saved the life of an ex-NCEL boss.

He will join other ex-players who will take on a team of doctors and nurses from the hospital at Farsley Celtic's Throstle Nest ground on Sunday 9th October at 3pm in, what promises to be, a star-studded event.

The game has been arranged after former Celts' manager Dave Fell, from Eccleshill, Bradford, suffered a brain aneurysm at his home. He was rushed to Bradford Royal Infirmary and was immediately transferred to the LGI where he underwent a seven-hour operation.

He is a former Leeds United schoolboy player and also spent five years on the coaching and scouting staff at the club. He has also played and managed at a number of non-league clubs including Farsley Celtic, Harrogate Town, Collingham, Hatfield Main, Tadcaster Albion, Harrogate Railway Athletic and Bradford Sunday League sides Albion Sports and Stanley Road.

He was seriously ill and in hospital for three weeks and wanted to show his appreciation for the doctors and nurses who, he says, "saved his life".

"I was chatting to two of the nurses one day while in hospital and the conversation got around to football," says Dave, who is married to Josephine and has a 16-year-old daughter Olga. "We hit on the idea of a charity football match to raise some much-needed funds for the unit."

Players who have confirmed they will play include father and son duo Terry and Jordan Yorath, Scott Sellars, Peter Haddock, John Stiles, Nigel Samson, John Hendry, Andy Ritchie, Neil Aspin, John McClelland, John Pearson, Bobby McDonald, Bobby Shields and Brendan Ormsby.

Others who will also take part are former Leeds United coach Jimmy Lumsden, who is now first team coach at Premiership Everton and Guiseley FC manager Neil Parsley.
