John Terry helps out his old club with a big wedge of cash

The young JT…


After telling the lovely story about Mario Balotelli giving a redheaded dreadlocked homeless chap some moolah, we thought it was only fair that we also told the tale of the England captain and his English little league side.

Apparently, after reading a heartbreaking story in the Daily Mail – the paper that’ll always stick up for the dispossessed and the vulnerable – about how his old side, Senrab, were struggling to pay the bills because of the withdrawal of funding, John Terry came forward and donated a load of cash to the cause…

The Chelsea centre-half said:

“When the seriousness of the situation was brought to my attention through reading the Daily Mail, I immediately wanted to help.

“Having made contact with Tony Carroll (Senrab club secretary) I’ve made a donation that I’ve been told should keep the club in a healthy position for the next few years.”

Senrab’s the team that Bobby Zamora, Ledley King, Jermain Defoe and a load of others played for, so hopefully they’ll be alright. It’s well rubbish that the council withdrew so much funding though and The Spoiler has heard many similar stories of excellent small clubs in its hometown also struggling.

With professional football teeming with absolute &%£*s, the joy on a whippersnapper’s face when they do a goal is one of the few things that is keeping our faith strongish.

Lets keep it going, yea?

Oh, and well done, John.

    I will need to see a picture of club secretary Tony Carroll’s wife before I can applaud John Terry for his philanthropy.

    We’ve got no wife photos, there’s a photo of Tony Carroll about halfway down this page…

    The problem with talking to newspapers about your philanthropy is that you risk making your generous act for the betterment of those less fortunate look like the cynical buying of positive PR with money that won’t make any difference to your personal circumstances.
