Burnham Football Club will host a charity six-a-side tournament in aid of the Jimmy Johnstone Charitable Trust this weekend.

Taking place on Saturday, June 11 at their 1878 Stadium, 12 supporter teams are set to participate in the event alongside a mini walking football tournament at the lunch break.

The event hopes to raise awareness and funds for multiple causes such as Motor Neurone Disease, prostate cancer and breast cancer.

Named after the Celtic legend who helped the Scottish club win the European Cup in the 1967, the famous striker died in 2006 after battling MND (Motor Neurone Disease) for five years.

As well as being part of the ‘Lisbon Lions’ team, Johnstone also won nine consecutive Scottish Championships with Celtic, and finished third in the 1967 Ballon d’Or award.

He was also voted as the Bhoys’ greatest-ever player in 2002.
