“I am taking this early opportunity to write to thank you and everyone at Football Aid for providing me the opportunity to play my FINAL game (at 75) in a most competitive and enjoyable match at the Stadium of Light yesterday. With both teams having highly skilled 
players the quality of play was outstanding and the final score line of England 8 Republic of Ireland 7 is proof of how open and resolute the match was. It was a pleasure and privilege to be part of such a memorable game and at the final whistle being congratulated by every player, and then on my return to our dressing room receiving a spontaneous ovation will be a lasting memory.
I must also thank you for the complimentary comments made when presenting the Winning Captain's Trophy that in years to come will remind me of such a wonderful day and what can be achieved personally through the dedicated ideals and staff at your Football Aid charity.”
