Big Chance To Get Papiss Cisse Shirt – It’s For Charity


Papiss Cisse is auctioning his number 9 match shirt from Newcastle United’s recent clash with West Ham United, and the bidding has started on ebay, and the money goes to a local hospital in Senegal.

Papiss Cisse with that shirt – you can bid for it today

Unfortunately there was a hiccup earlier today , and the bidding had to be reset on ebay, after the bidding had reached $1400, so it’s a bit frustrating for everyone concerned – but hey – everything working now and you can bid here.

A spokesman for Friends of Sedhiou had this to say:

“As it stands, the hospital is not equipped to deal with many cases it encounters.” “As a result of this it has to transport the patients to a larger hospital in Dakar, which is four to five hours’ drive from Sedhiou.”

“Tragically, some patients do not survive the journey. It is this injustice which Papiss and the Friends of Sedhiou would like to rectify.” “Improvements to the ambulance, and additional resources and equipment at the hospital would do this.”

“In addition, Papiss is building a mosque in the area which is of vital importance.” “Faith and religion are the cornerstone of life in the community.”

“This is something which is valued greatly by the people who live there.”

And Joe, one of the organizers told me today:

“Can’t tell you how nice a guy Papiss is. As down to earth as you could wish for. He does so much for the area but even he cannot do it alone.” Fingers crossed it picks up again and we see it get the bids it deserves. The winner gets the shirt presented by Papiss himself at St James’ Park.”

Here is the link to the ebay listing – with the bidding at the time of writing being a low £275.

Let’s help Papiss Cisse as much as we can – here’s such a great guy and doing a great job for his home country – we’re proud of him..

    Great cause but out of my price range unfortunately.

    Anyway

    Just a question for those who like this thing. Well 2 separate questions.

    1) can anyone name the player who has won the premier league, the FA cup, the champions league, the euros and the World Cup.

    2) there have been 6 players who’s first and last name begin with the same letter who have scores prem league hat tricks. Can you name all 6? (Eg. Players banes like Carlton cole, he isn’t one by the way)

    Correct.

    He is one of two I believe. Another has won those but also the league and FA cup with a second English side.

    Got it there with Anelka.

    Earnshaw is the only player to score a hattrick in top 4 English leagues and international football too.
