This IS Non-League Football - Mark Taylor

Just over a year ago Mark Taylor was a member of the Whitley Bay squad that beat Glossop North End in the FA Vase Final. In January this year he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease - and to put it diplomatically - that is not nice ...

Last night there was a charity game up at Hillheads Park where the team of 2009/10 met the team of 2002 - and notwithstanding the local interest (over 1300 turned up), it's worth pointing out that a small group of Glossop fans made the long journey up there as well, to show their support ..

Now that's what I call non-league football - a "true family" - and my thoughts go to Mark and his family as well - hang in there ... you have the support of many more people than you think. If anyone out there would like to show their support for Mark check out ..
