FA helps out former England favorite Jimmy Greaves

jimmy-greaves

The Football Association has donated to an appeal that is trying to help former England striker Jimmy Greaves recover from a stroke.

Greaves left hospital in June, one month after suffering a severe stroke, and the 75-year-old's agent is trying to raise £30,000 to pay for 500 hours of physiotherapy.

Tottenham, one of his former clubs, have paid for part of Greaves' treatment and now the FA has also made a contribution.

An FA spokesman said: "The FA are aware of the campaign. (Chairman) Greg Dyke has made a discretionary contribution to that."

It is understood the figure pledged by the FA is a four-figure sum.

Greaves played 57 times for England and scored 44 goals.

    Hmm, I remember Greavsie admonishing a reader of his 90’s Ask Greavsie column, who felt sorry for a former player having to sell his F.A. Cup winners medal and other memorabilia to help pay his debts.

    A sad irony.
