Stars turn out for Jonjo

A host of ex-footballers and celebrities helped Jonjo Heuerman raise more than £4,500 for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK at a special charity Golf Day on Wednesday.

The champion fundraiser and West Ham United supporter continued his amazing exploits by organising the event at Ilford Golf Club. Ten-year-old Heuerman has been raising money for the Bobby Moore Fund since his Nanny Lyn died in 2009 from bowel cancer - the same disease which took the life of West Ham and England legend Moore in February 1993.

There, he was joined by former Hammers John Moncur, Tony Gale, Allan McKnight and Ray Houghton, ex-Arsenal winger Perry Groves and talkSPORT presenter Ian 'Moose' Abrahams.

Each celebrity joined a fourball for an exciting afternoon of golf, with Moose's team somehow ending up in first place!

"It was a fantastic afternoon," said the Official Programme columnist. "The course was very tight and challenging but was in top condition and the weather was good too! The ex-players all joined in enthusiastically and Jonjo managed to raise more than £4,500 for the Bobby Moore Fund, which was superb.

"What Jonjo has done and continues to do is something special. He is only ten but he has raised nearly £100,000 for the Bobby Moore Fund, which is amazing.

"Somehow, my fourball won with a score of 115! I thought I played well considering I had not picked up a club for three years. The highlight of my round was an up-and-down from 30 yards out on the eighth hole that even Gary O'Neil would've been proud of!

"Perhaps the funniest moment was when I hit a seven-iron into the 14th green and nealy took the head off one of John Moncur's team - I was laughing so much I forgot to shout fore, which wasn't very professional of me!"

In recent years, Heuerman has held two long-distance walks to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund and plans are already well underway for his ROUTE 66 walk, which will see him walk 66 miles in six days to mark the 20th anniversary of Moore's death in February 2013.
