Hemel Pledge To Help Raise £10,000 For Stricken Spencer

Hemel Hempstead have vowed to do all they can to help midfielder Spencer McCall through his cancer battle - and have joined the quest to raise £10,000.

Hemel, with the player and his family’s permission, have detailed the 24-year-old’s off field battles after his sudden diagnosis.

Now their attention turns to fundraising and a web donation page has been set up. You can contribute by clicking here.

So far over £7,000 has been raised for the former Wingate player.

“Many of you will know that Spencer has struggled with injury since the end of last season,” a statement read.

“With no sign of the injury clearing up Spencer has spent a lot of time at the doctors and hospital trying to determine exactly what the problem is.

“Initially Spencer was told that he had a fracture in his lower leg, however a few weeks ago Spencer was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, which is a rare type of bone cancer and he is currently undergoing a course of chemotherapy.

“Spencer is 24 years old and has been with the club since signing from Wingate & Finchley in October 2017.

“In that time it is blatantly obvious to anyone that has met Spencer what a great lad he is. Spencer is tackling this with the same determination he shows on the football pitch, head on and with everything he has got.

“The club are going to be holding fundraising events in order to raise funds for Spencer so please keep an eye open for news on the club website and social media outlets.

“All of our thoughts and best wishes go out to Spencer and his family at this time, we look forward to seeing him back at Vauxhall Road in better health soon.”
