In early September around 20 Scots will be heading to Mongolia as part of a charity fundraiser. In terms of players so far we have to date 6 Rangers, 5 Celtic, 1 Motherwell and 5 others.We have organised a charity trip for two different charities both who
have links with Scottish football legends both sadly deceased - the
Davie Cooper Centre and the Jimmy Johnston Charity.
It was all wee Willie Henderson's original idea, great gentleman he
is, so I have invited a number of Rangers, Celtic and Motherwell
supporters to join me on a trip of a life time to trek the great Gobi
Desert (100 miles) but before that we will play in the Mongolian
national stadium (a first for any team from the UK) against a
Mongolian PREMIER SIDE, Mazaalai F.C , so the name of our news team
is GOBI UNITED FC as we are all united in the same cause to raise
funds for both charities.
The money raised will go to the Davie Cooper Centre and Motor Neuron
Scotland, after our WIN we will head out to the great Gobi desert to
trek 100 miles, staying with local tribes people on the way. In short
this is a one of adventure which the people involved in will NEVER
In April I am meeting the Mongolian ambassador in Glasgow to
discuss the trip i.e. selling Scotland and its people to the
Mongolians. A Mongolian TV station and sports network station are
going to film us on our arrival as in there words a great "peoples"
story, as this trip will embrace both cultures.
We hope to depart after leaving Hampden Park from the international
game on the 3rd of September. We will of course be also wearing the
KILT! What I am look for is took make people aware of what we are
doing why we are doing it. Would they like to join us or sponsor us
in any way?
