The Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation has donated another life-saving defibrillator to Buckhurst Hill Football Club.

The donation was made during yesterday’s charity football match at Roding Lane, the home of Buckhurst Hill Football Club.

CEO Charlie Edinburgh presented club chairman Simon Cornwell with the defibrillator before a JE3 All-Stars team took on Buckhurst Hill in a charity fixture with all proceeds going to the JE3 Foundation.

On a glorious day in Essex, a large crowd was treated to a great game which was fairly contested and finished in a 2-2 draw, with Buckhurst Hill winning 5-3 on penalties.

A JE3 squad that included the likes of Teddy Sheringham, Luke Young, Jimmy Walker, Charlie Daniels, and JE3 trustees Jobi McAnuff and Josh Wright gave spectators a fantastic afternoon.

The Automated External Defibrillator will now be a permanent fixture at the club and will be utilised by the club’s mini soccer project.

The donation was made possible thanks to the fantastic fundraising efforts of ‘SPURSFANS2022’ which includes:

Bharat Patel, Carole Hodge, Colin Abbott, David Oliver, Danny Tunman and Stephanie Temple.

 

In line with the commitment to sharing Justin’s story and increasing access to defibrillators, the Foundation invites organisations to apply to the defibrillator donation scheme.

Jobi has also been nominated alongside Mark Esiri, co-founder and current chair of Venrex Investment Management.

FA Chair, Debbie Hewitt MBE, said: “We’re delighted to nominate Jobi and Mark to join the FA Board. Both appointments will reflect an important step in our commitment to add to the skillset, diversity, and independence of our Board. Jobi’s experience of playing in the professional and national game, as well as his coaching and management expertise and his involvement in grassroots and academy football, will enhance the Board’s insight to modern day issues on and off the pitch.

“Mark’s experience of creating and developing a broad range of digitally focused organisations, as well as his experience of stakeholder boards and grassroots football, will bring a breadth of skills to the FA.

“They are both passionate about using the game to drive positive change, which is strongly aligned to our mission at the FA, and we believe they will complement our Board well.

“We are also pleased to see Tim Score take up a permanent role as independent director and Kate Tinsley stepping up to become senior independent director.”

Jobi McAnuff said: “I’m delighted to be nominated to be part of the FA Board. This is an exciting time to join the organisation, under the stewardship of new FA Chair Debbie Hewitt. Having played and worked across various levels of the game, I believe that I can bring a fresh perspective to the Board. I want to use this experience to help move the organisation forward as it looks to tackle key issues and I can’t wait to get started.”

Mark Esiri added: “I have grown up surrounded by football, so to be able to play an important role in the growth and development of the English game is a huge honour. The FA is passionate about improving participation levels across the game through improved digital technology, which aligns well with my values and skillset. I am so pleased to be joining the FA Board and hope that my experience can help build on the positive work already taking place across the country and the wider game.”

By Events

Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation trustee Jobi McAnuff has been named the winner of the prestigious ‘Sir Tom Finney’ Award at the EFL Awards 2022.

The prestigious prize, which is presented to a player who has had an outstanding career and contributed an exceptional amount to the EFL and football in general, has been awarded to the former midfielder, who totaled more than 750 appearances for eight clubs.

McAnuff, who played in all four tiers and captained Reading and Leyton Orient to promotions, becomes the latest recipient of the annual award.

“It’s a massive honour and privilege to receive an award like this.” he said. “To win an individual award after my career is finished – I didn’t win many when I was playing – is special.

“For me, playing football has always been a dream. That’s what kept me going as long as I did and gave me that drive to keep going.

“Professionally, just to be recognised with the nature of the award, it’s a special one. You look at some of the past recipients – people that are held in incredibly high regard in football and in the EFL, which I’ve got a very close affinity to, as well.”

Jobi was presented his award by JE3 Foundation CEO Charlie Edinburgh at the event last night at Grosvenor Hotel in London.

From everyone at the foundation, we would like to congratulate Jobi and thank him for his continued support and the work he does with the foundation.
