Legends to Battle for Ryan Edwards Cup
ARGYLE Legends are taking part in a charity match in Camborne on Sunday , April 15, with money raised going to the Teenage Cancer Trust of Derriford Hospital.
The game will be played for the Ryan Edwards Cup, named after the Argyle defender who has battled testicular cancer this season, donated by Argyle supporters website PASOTI.
The Legends will be playing Camborne-based Holmans FC, in a game that will kick-off at 2.30pm.
The idea for the match came from Zac Rowe, an Argyle fan who lives in Camborne and wanted to help Edwards get back on track towards filling his first team spot again.
A bucket collection will take place at half time in order to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust and the team will be wearing specially made shirts which will have Derriford’s Teenage Cancer Trust logo and the #WithYouEddy hashtag on them in support of Argyle’s defender.
Part of Edwards’ treatment has been at Derriford so he has seen the Teenage Cancer Trust’s hard work and commitment to helping young people first hand. He said: “I spoke to my chemo nurses who have been first class with me every step of the way. They actually treat people up to 24 years of age, which is why they treated me.”
A Teenage Cancer Trust spokesperson said: “Teenage Cancer Trust is here to make sure that no young person faces cancer alone.
“Our expert staff in Plymouth support young people and bring them together so they can support each other.”
