Charity match today for Stephen Waters

The event is being held in memory of Stephen Waters, who lost his long fight with Fanconi Anaemia on January 10 this year, aged 29.
He was diagnosed with the illness aged four but did not let it prevent him from being a keen footballer.
One of the match organisers, Mr Water’s friend Andrew Clements, who lives in Hungerford, said: “I’m arranging the charity football match in Stephen’s honour.”
“The event takes place at Hungerford Town Football Club from 2pm, with the kick-off at 3pm. There will be a £2 charge on the gate with all donations accepted.”
Mr Waters, a mechanic nicknamed Mini, was also a manager and coach of Thatcham Tornadoes Football Team.
Proceeds of the match will be donated to Fanconi Hope, a charity set up to research the disease and to help support sufferers.
Fanconi Anaemia affects both children and adults, leading to bone marrow failure and bone marrow transplantation, with very high risk of leukaemia and head and neck cancers.
Friends and relatives have also established the Stephen Waters Foundation.
The foundation has been set up to provide free football coaching for primary age children in West Berkshire during school holidays.
