It was a day to remember for Flackwell Heath FC, as their charity-focused league match against Arlesey Town on January 22 turned out to be a resounding success.

The Heathens, who have averaged around 148 people per game this season, saw a whopping 403 visitors at Wilks Park over the weekend, with the club raising an incredible £3,313.25 for the Prostate Cancer UK charity.

This was to celebrate the news that their chairman, Terry Glynn, had defeated the illness for a second time.

The club had planned to organise the charity-themed festivities over the Christmas period in their fixture against Broadfields United, but due to the rising number of Covid cases, along with waterlogged pitches, many Non League games across the country were postponed.

However, the rearranged match to mark Mr Glynn’s all-clear took place over the weekend [January 22].

The home side earned a 1-0 win whilst playing most of the contest with 10 men, but the day saw many first-time football enthusiasts at Wilks Park.

Supporters of Flackwell Heath, Wycombe Wanderers, Arsenal, Reading, Aldershot Town, Caversham United, Chelsea, Cardiff City, and Wolverhampton Wanderers were all seen across the stadium wearing their team's colours, whilst former Reading and Oxford striker, Dave Kitson, was also in attendance. 

Kitson, who played in the Premier League for the Royals, as well as Stoke City, was player-manager of Arlesey during the 2014/15 season and is currently the club’s chairman.

A large part of the huge attendance, which was one of the highest in England for a Non League game over the weekend, was down to many popular names in the football and media industry urging locals and groundhoppers to get down to the match.

Some of these people included Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth and TalkSport commentator Tony Incenzo.
