Just want to say thank you for an absolutely wonderful day!! I think that was my dad’s 8th/9th Football Aid match and it certainly was up there as one of the best for him!! Only my 2nd but it was such a superb day! Great to see blue and red at Goodison Park and play in the first ever derby! The experience you put on is second to none and I won’t hesitate to say I am sure we will be back soon!! All the best”.
