PNE Buy Grezza's Boots In Boot The Virus Auction

25 May 2020

Preston North End have purchased Graham Alexander's boots he wore to score that special goal in the final game of his career in aid of NHS Charities.

Grezza generously donated one of his most prized possessions to the Boot The Virus campaign to help raise significant funds for NHS Charities.

The boots were the ones he wore to score with his final touch of his professional playing career in what was a special moment for both Graham and everyone associated with the club.

The club, and in particular owner Mr Trevor Hemmings, felt it was important that such a historic piece of memorabilia worn by a club legend was held by the club, while also supporting a very worthy cause.

The boots will be proudly displayed at Deepdale as a tribute to a club legend, further details on where they will be available to view will be announced once football returns and supporters are able to attend Deepdale.

Speaking after the auction ended, Grezza said: "Firstly I’d like to thank Kenny & Joanne for asking me to be involved in their campaign & to congratulate them on the amount of money they’ve raised, so far!

"These boots are special to me not just because of the goal I scored, but because it was the perfect way to say thank you for all the great support & brilliant times I enjoyed at my second home - Deepdale.

"Finally, my sincere gratitude also goes to Mr Hemmings for buying them on behalf of Preston North End, a great gesture to keep them where they belong."

A huge congratulations to North End fans Kenny and Joanne who set up the campaign which has raised over £62,000 so far for NHS Charities!
