Footy Accumulators and Altrincham FC tackle Motor Neurone Disease together

Following Footy Accumulators recent sponsorship of Altrincham FC seeing Altrincham FC’s main stand at the J.Davidson Stadium being renamed the ‘FootyAccumulators.com’ stand, Footy Accumulators have also joined the club in a mission to support Motor Neurone Disease.

Former Robins captain Mark Maddox was told at the age of 37 that he was diagnosed with the disease which would’ve been such crushing news, but that hasn’t stopped him going and achieving incredible things. He ran the London Marathon on behalf of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MND) back in 2013, raising an incredible £5000. Now Footy Accumulators, together with Altrincham FC want to help the MND Association in their battle against the illness with a current Robins hero.

Jordan Hulme scored 31 goals for Altrincham last season leading their way to winning the Northern Premier League Premier Division title and he’s a firm favourite with the club’s supporters. He’s made the step up to the National League North with ease too, netting 4 times in his opening 4 games, which has led to Footy Accumulators making a pledge.

Altrincham director Lawrence Looney, who was a key player in setting up the sponsorship deal, said: “This innovative collaboration is the first of its type for Altrincham Football Club & represents a very real opportunity to create, develop & grow commercial opportunities for both partners.”

For every goal that Jordan scores this season, Footy Accumulators will donate £50 to the MND Association via their official JustGiving page. The Motor Neurone Disease Association does some fantastic work and with it so close to Altrincham FC, it feels right that they support their efforts.
