Football Players Coloccini and Jose Enrique Spotted Playing Bingo
If there is one thing that is unanimously loved all across the United Kingdom, it is football. However, when the Newcastle players came out to play bingo instead of football a few days ago, they proved that the Brits have grown to love this parlor game just as much!
Two players, Fabricio Coloccini and Jose Enrique, from the Newcastle United Football Club visited a bingo hall in Cramlington Village and although both players are worth millions of pounds, they were looking to win a bingo jackpot.
The two players were seen at the Social Club of Cramlington Village; they were visiting the club in order to deliver a check for charity but ended up staying for several games of bingo instead. The check was from the Ladies Darts Team that had raised £2400 at a game of bingo to aid cancer relief after Dot, a friend of theirs afflicted with the disease, had died. The money that was raised will be distributed between the Macmillan and Sir Bobby Robson Foundation’s cancer nurses.
Lorraine Weatherson, the event organizer for the cancer relief fundraiser, commented on the issue and stated that everyone missed 64 year old Dot who had passed away. She also mentioned that the Ladies Darts Team had all joined hands to raise the funds together.
The two players had come to deliver the check but ended up playing five games of bingo instead. It was apparent that the footballers enjoyed their time spent there as they joked about the bingo calls used in the games. Dot’s grandson, Paul Bower was very happy with the efforts of the Ladies Darts Team. He also mentioned that almost everyone in the club had been friends of his grandmother. The players presented the check, signed some autographs and met with Dot’s family. The family commented that Dot would have been extremely pleased to see these Newcastle Football Players at the club especially since Jose Enrique was her favorite player.
