QPR fan Paul Sissons took part in 2016 and told Football Aid about his experience after the game: “I had a fantastic time at Loftus Road! The chance to play on the same pitch I've watched players on for many years was amazing.

"Dan Shittu was a great guy, and was very happy to chat, have pictures taken and sign autographs. Very happy to be on the winning side, in a game that was played in a friendly but competitive spirit. I even got the chance to be interviewed for the DVD - felt like a real pro.

"Despite saying I would be too old to play again, I am already looking forward to next year! Can't recommend this highly enough, anybody thinking about taking part should do it."
