Calling all clubs: Help Upton St Leonards remember Maddie

Here at Severn Sport we pride ourselves on bringing the local football community together and tell the stories that need to be told. And that brings us to a link we saw shared on Twitter.

At the end of December 2019, Upton St Leonards manager Lewis Scott sadly lost his 13-year old niece Maddie and both Scott and the club are looking to commemorate the memory of Maddie by purchasing a memorial bench in her honour.

In order to raise the funds required to install the bench, Scott will be taking on the challenge of a sponsored bike ride totalling 31 miles in distance, on March 8th 2020 – what would have been Maddie’s 14th birthday.

Upton’s Nick Musty has set up a GoFundMe page in order to help and encourage donations and incredibly within the first 24 hours they have raised £650 of the £1200 target (accurate as of time of writing).

Here at Severn Sport we encourage everyone to dig deep and donate to a wonderful cause and help Lewis Scott and everyone at Upton St Leonards remember Maddie and celebrate a young life tragically cut short.
