Tony Craig's fantastic gesture to Headley Court

3 July 2016

Lions club captain to make donation from proceeds of Testimonial to Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre

Millwall club captain Tony Craig made a special visit to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre in Surrey on Thursday afternoon.

The Lions have a strong link with Headley Court dating back to 2014 when seven members of staff and a quartet of players visited the Centre ahead of the home game with Brentford on Saturday 8th November, when Millwall wore a special one-off camouflage kit to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

The Bees skipper on that memorable day was TC, who is now back at his spiritual home in SE16.

However, such an impact was made on the defender that TC has confirmed he will be making a donation from the proceeds from his forthcoming Testimonial match against Brentford on Saturday 30th July to Headley Court.

He told "I was so glad to be a part of that day, it was such a humbling experience. It was a great day for the club on and off the pitch and to be a part of it was fantastic. As soon as the club granted me a Testimonial there was only one charity that I was going to choose, and that was Headley Court.

"Having now visited the Medical Centre I have seen first hand the incredible work that they do. They have got the best equipment and the best personnel. Just seeing and hearing what people have to go through puts a lot of things in perspective.

"What I've seen here now makes me even more determined to get as many people along for the game on the 30th to help raise money for a fantastic cause."
