Not only that, we did it against a very established, very well known & extremely talented team – Lashings All Stars.. BUT this event as always,was for Charity & Teammum & Chris from Jewsons believed that a Jewson VI with Celeb FC involved could take on the mighty Lashings All Stars!
The Jewsons V1 was created from some Celeb FC players along with sports personalities – Both were chock full of international cricketing legends and stars..
Household names such as Steve Gritt,Gordon Greenidge, John Emburey Yasir Arafat (cricketer, born 1982) and well know TV sports caster & ex Professional footballer John Salako (Who also stood in for Celeb FC / Jewson VI as team captain) along with Jason Burrill (Big Brother Winner 2016), Derry Mensah (X Factor) & Michael Kurn (Sports Reporter / PL Fanzone Presenter).
There was also live music to follow the cricket from acts from #CelebFC including Teammate Derry Luca Mensah ( The Risk / The X Factor) & Lucy Texeira (Two Shoes / X Factor ) as Beyonce – The Irreplaceable Tribute and headlining was the Wonderful Sam Bailey – X FACTOR WINNER!
