CONWY Borough FC have arranged a fundraising match in aid of Mickey Thomas later this month.

The Tangerines’ will take on a Wrexham Legends side at their Y Morfa base on Sunday, April 28, with all proceeds going towards the former Manchester United, Wrexham and Wales star.

Thomas was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus earlier this year and started chemotherapy and radiography at Glan Clwyn Hospital in Bodelwyddan in February.

He is set to have an operation in Wrexham later this year, and a Go Fund Me page has raised more than £22,000 to assist Thomas with his treatment and recovery.

United legends such as Bryan Robson and Denis Irwin have all contributed to the cause, and Thomas revealed that he has received “overwhelming” support from the football community at all levels.

Thomas played for Everton, Brighton, Stoke City, Chelsea, West Brom, Derby, Shrewsbury and Leeds as well as gaining 51 Welsh caps in a 10-year-stint representing his country.

The idea for the game came from Borough’s long-serving kit-man Lee Jones, who has formed a friendship with Thomas and was eager to contribute to his fight against the disease.

The event is set to kick-off at 1.30pm, with admission priced at £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and £1 for under 16’s.

Refreshments will be available from the Huws Gray Alliance side’s clubhouse.
