Shayen Patel had a tremendous influence on those around him with many of his friends and family reaching out to people he liked and supported (like KSI earlier this week – below) to share a message in memory of Shay.
Shay was a huge Chelsea FC supporter and with their summer signing of Ben Chilwell, who started his grassroots journey with Woburn & Wavendon FC, it felt fitting that we reached out to him and ask if he could send us a video to pass on to Shay’s family and friend after announcing his Chelsea FC shirt number as 21, the same number Shay wore every week!
This weekend (19th/20th) all of our WWFC teams alongs with teams playing in the MKDDL and BYSL will take the time to applaud before kick off in memory of Shay and Dean Mandabva, a Moretonville JFC who sadly passed away earlier this month after also bravely battling cancer.
At such sad times, It’s amazing to see the influence and support the footballing community offers to each other.
Shay’s friends also reached out to K.S.I, who fulfilled Shayan’s wish of having him appear in one of his video’s as he was a huge fan having watched all his videos and seeing him perform live.
