Smiles for FC Team as Moss does Dad proud

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - BY DAVID GOLD

There was an emo­tional and fit­ting trib­ute to the late Peter Moss as FC Team drew 2-2 with a Tot­ten­ham leg­ends XI in an en­ter­tain­ing me­mo­rial game for the MSFL Premier Di­vi­sion side’s for­mer Pres­i­dent.

A Tot­ten­ham team in­clud­ing Steve Sed­g­ley, Andy Sin­ton and Justin Ed­in­burgh all turned out but it was Peter’s son, Gideon, who stole the show.

Andy Sheena’s tenth minute strike put Mitch Young’s men ahead only for Micky Southam to equalise.

Tot­ten­ham be­gan to dom­i­nate but it was Gideon Moss, who grabbed the head­lines by set­ting up child­hood friend Young to round off a stun­ning counter-at­tack.

“It was fan­tas­tic a re­ally good game played in a re­ally good spirit,” said Gideon.

“There were tack­les fly­ing around, and my old man liked a good tackle!

“I spent a lot more time off the ball than on the ball to­day. It’s a great ex­pe­ri­ence to take on guys you’ve seen on TV who have played in the Premier­ship.

Moss also said he’d trea­sure the goal he set up for Young: “That was one from the foot­balling gods be­cause Mitch and I have been best mates since we were seven. For us to link up and score that goal, I’ll re­mem­ber that for the rest of my life.”

Mickey Southam grabbed a late equaliser for Tot­ten­ham to en­sure the spoils were shared.

“It was re­ally spe­cial,” said boss Young.

“We wanted to get a pro­fes­sional side and make it as big a spec­ta­cle as we could for Pete.

“All the boys did re­ally well. Pete would have wanted us to have put our all in and worked re­ally hard.”

Af­ter the match, an auc­tion was held for the men­tal health char­ity JAMI, for who Peter Moss had given much of his time to help and work with over the years, rais­ing £1,500 to take the over­all to­tal to £6,500. Among the items for auc­tion was an FC Team shirt signed by all of the squad as well as the Tot- ten­ham leg­ends par­tic­i­pat­ing in the game. It went for £320 and fit­tingly was won by Peter Moss’s sis­ter, Judy.
