Bid On Grezza's Boots From That Special Goal In Aid Of NHS Charities

18 May 2020

North End legend Graham Alexander has donated one of his most prized possessions to the Boot The Virus campaign, in aid of NHS Charities.

Grezza has donated the boots he wore to score with his final touch of his professional playing career in what was a special moment against Charlton Athletic back in 2012.

The boots are signed and come in a presentation case, with all funds raised going to NHS Charities!

It is an incredible gesture from one of North End's greats and he explained the reason why he donated this special piece of memorabilia.

"A week or so ago I was made aware of the Boot The Virus campaign, who are trying to raise money for the NHS by getting footballers to donate a pair of boots and hopefully raise some good funds.

"Obviously my days playing are long behind me but I do have this one pair of boots from my career which I saved. They are a special pair of boots for me, they are from one of the best moments of my career when I scored with my last touch in professional football.

"For however special these boots are for me, what the NHS are doing at the moment only highlights what they have been doing, certainly in my whole lifetime.

"My family have relied upon the NHS from when I was a child, through to the birth of my children and if there is any way of saying thank you, hopefully this will be it.

"I am doing this because hopefully they will raise as much money as possible and show everyone's appreciation for the brilliant work that the NHS and all of the people in it, are doing at the moment."

Along with this terrific opportunity to own a pair of boots from a memorable moment in the club's history, you can also bid on a pair of boots from one of our current players with the whole squad involved in the campaign with less than a week remaining in the auction!
