Frickley Athletic are staging a benefit match for central defender Steve Heath at Westfield Lane on Monday 5th May. Thirty year old Heath has missed almost all of this season after undergoing numerous tests throughout the season for a form of cancer. Having now had a tumour removed Heath is now hoping to begin his recovery but, unfortunately, his illness has also prevented him from working for several months and he is still unlikely to work during his recovery.

Frickley have therefore arranged a match between Frickley’s current squad and a Chairman’s Invitation XI which will kick off at 3pm on Bank Holiday Monday. Players who have already committed to appear for the Chairman’s XI include Neil Redfern, Martyn Woolford, Gary Hatto, Gary Ingham, Steve Kennedy and Antony Jackson.

The Frickley side will be managed by player Steve Robinson with the current management team of Billy Heath and Mark Carroll due to turn out as players.

The main match will be preceded by a match between South Kirkby Juniors U12s and Upton United Under 12s. The turnstiles open at mid-day and admission is £5 for adults and £2 for concessions.

In order to raise further funds for Steve Heath Frickley are asking for bids for people to participate in the day itself in several ways. These are as follows:

Auction 1 – Player : Bids are invited from males over the age of 16

Auction 2 - Assistant Manager : Bids are invited from males or females over the age of 10

Auction 3 – Mascots : Bids are invited on the behalf of children under 16s

All bids to be lodged in writing with any Club Official or via e-mail to Please state clearly which auction you are bidding on and leave full contact details. The auctions will close at 8pm on Saturday 3rd May in order that the winners can be notified of their success on Sunday 4th May.

In addition the Frickley squad will be signing all the shirts in both the home and away shirts and these are being offered for auction, with the exception of the home number 9 and 10 shirts which have been reserved by sponsors. Again, all bids are to be lodged with any Club Official or via e-mail to and full contact details should be given along with the number of shirt being bid on. The deadline for bids is 5pm on Monday 5th May.

Steve Heath started his career as a junior at Leeds United. He had spells at Carlisle United and Rotherham United before joining Stamford. He moved on to Matlock Town and Ilkeston Town before joining Alfreton Town in summer 2000. He moved to Bridlington Town in June 2003 and joined Frickley for the first time towards the end of the 2005/06 season before joining Stocksbridge Park Steels the following season. He returned to Frickley upon the appointment of his brother Billy as manager in October 2006

Remember speaking with Billy at Ossett on Boxing Day and enquiring about the Stav as he was not playing and the great man told me what had happened. Massive best wishes to Steve from all at Brid Town and hope the turn out is suitably large and generous. A nicer family you could not meet in football. The name Heath is worshipped on the coast and we pray everything turns out as it should.
