Writing a message on Twitter, Czech Republic ambassador Libor Secka has proposed a charity match between West Ham United and Slavia Prague, with many Hammers fans in agreement and pleading for it to happen.
The two clubs have been enjoying a great relationship recently, arguably highlighted by the Hammers’ acquisitions of Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal in the summer, and the ambassador to the Czech Republic in London has thought of a worthwhile initiative for a good cause.
This would be to raise money for Isla Caton and her treatment for a rare form of child cancer called Neuroblastoma, with further care needed in Barcelona as the fight continues (JustGiving).
After meeting with the child’s family recently, Secka has proposed a charity match between Slavia Prague and West Ham United, prompting many West Ham fans to support the idea on Twitter. He wrote: “Without addressing the Boards of both clubs is not possible to organise Charity match for Isla Caton between Slavia Prague and WHU. Do you support my effort to go ahead with the initiative?”.
As the prospective event could support an important cause, while giving the Irons and Slavia a chance to play each other, it’s little wonder that so many Hammers fans are in full support of the prospect.
