A MOSSLEY-BASED charity football club is getting ready for a final fling as it raises funds for different organisations.
FC Bohemians was a club conceived around the time of first Covid-19 lockdown by Callum Irving, former interim chairman at Mossley AFC.
Now it will play at Bolton Arena on Sunday, October 29 in the final of the United Charity League’s Douglas Frost Memorial Shield.
Bohs, as they like to be known, will face Preston-based Fishwick Rangers in the showpiece, which is the competition’s northern area final.
After the idea was born, Dave Hulme took on the club and recruited several players, with Mossley pub The Blazing Rag sponsoring its home and away kits.
The Bohs have also recently entered a team into the First Division of the Tameside Sunday League – that will run separately with a charity team at same time.
They have also experienced the painful side of football as manager Mark Egerton recently broke both the tibia and fibula bones in his leg.
FC Bohemians’ final against Fishwick Rangers kicks off at 4pm in Sunday, October 29 at Bolton Arena, which stands opposite Bolton Wanderers’ stadium.
Entry is free but people are encouraged to make a donation towards the good causes the United Charity League gives to.
FC Bohemians is also on the lookout for new players aged 18 and above, as well as anyone interested in managing as new teams are emerging from what they have already done.
