    Help Whitburn & Cleadon JFC give Jasper wings to fly...

    Whitburn & Cleadon Junior Football Club has been supporting the Botchway, Abladey, Hughes Football Academy (BAHFA) in Kpone, Ghana with kit donations. Now we have the chance to change a life…

    We are trying to help Jasper Adjetey Adjei, 17 years old and a player with BAHFA. He is pictured here wearing a donated W&C JFC jersey.

    Jasper has been offered a place to study at Tyne Metropolitan College and to join Morpeth Town FC’s new football academy. You can find out more at:

    Our aim is to raise the funds to fly him to the North East and get him started. Jasper’s father was killed when he was young, so his life has not been easy. But he is a quiet, humble, determined lad - and by all accounts he can play. He just needs the start up funds to get here.

    We think it would be a fantastic story if our football family could help Jasper seize this opportunity, get to the North East and start an unbelievable adventure.

    We know our club Whitburn & Cleadon JFC will get behind us, but we are appealing to all clubs - from grassroots to elite - players, supporters and parents to help us hit our target.

    If we can change one life for the better, what an achievement!

    Please get on board and help us.

      The application for a visa for Jasper has been a protracted business - Covid-19 has not helped speed the process! However, Morpeth Town FC have confirmed and are holding Jasper's place for the next window for visa approval in January. So the wheels are in motion and we will update on visa progress later in the year. In the meantime Jasper has been busy helping the BAHFA group gain promotion to the top league and we hope to feature some pix of him and his team mates soon.

      The exciting news is that Jasper has started going through the visa and health checks appropriate for travel to the UK. The next stage will be to book that flight. A huge thank you to all our supporters. It’s not too late to help us get closer to that £2000 target. As a 17 year old, Jasper needs an adult mentor with him. So we’re trying to help uncle Simon Botchway to accompany Jasper on this stage of the journey. Please help us by donating or sharing today. Thank you.

      We have had some fantastic support in the last couple of days - from South Tyneside and lately (we suspect) from the good folk of Morpeth Town. We are now at 59% of target and Jasper is getting closer to paying for his visa and booking his flight. Big thank you to #TheMorpethHerald. God bless all local newspapers - either in print or digital format. The world would be far poorer without them! Please help us get over the £2k line by donating and sharing Jasper's story. #BAHFA #Highwaymen #MorpethTownAFC #wcjfc
