Celtic were the first Club to sign up with Football Aid, and with the Scottish giant's support, other Clubs were quick to follow suit. As such, Football Aid's first season was a resounding success with 47 games played in 45 Clubs around the UK involving over 1200 players, 263 goals and 1 red card! Prominent Diabetes campaigner and Scotland legend Danny McGrain is the Club's Ambassador as well as Football Aid's Vice Patron. And over the years, with the support of Danny we have been able to call on a who's who of Celtic Legends, with the likes of Paul Lambert, Neil Lennon, Tom Boyd, Andy Walker, Darren Jackson, Tosh McKinlay, Joe Miller, Bobby Petta and George McCluskey joining the normally ever present Danny on the pitch at Celtic Park, while the likes of Billie McNeill, Bertie Auld, Bobby Lennox and John Kennedy have relished their roles as Managers.
