Some say the FIFA World Cup is the football event of 2018, but we know that’s just the warm up! The main event is the NHS Cup 5-aside tournament taking place on 21 July at Goals in Leicester! Featuring teams from across LPT and UHL, this event isn’t only (friendly!) football fun it’s also a fundraiser. Who are our football legends representing LPT? Bos-Ton Red Sox captain John-Paul Vivers talks tactics, team nutrition and theme songs…

  1. What’s your team name? The Bos-ton red sox
  2. Who are you raising funds for and why? Joint fundraising for Bosworth and Thornton wards for “calm-down” equipment for patients to help de-escalating aggression and violence – take a look at our fundraising page justgiving.com/crowdfunding/bmhufootball2018

  10. How will you be training for the competition? With plenty of pie sandwiches with lashings of dripping for butter.

  12. What professional team are you most like? Think like the best to be the best!
