Teenage Boy's Tribute To His Mother Melts Hearts
Mohammed Bhana, Huddersfield Town Football Ambassador
Courage does not merely entail physical ability – it is a big word , as it covers a whole list of accomplishments, just as much psychological as physical, perhaps more so.
Courage is more than being able to stand up to a kicking on the field of play. Courage is also all about the ability to get up when things are getting to you, to get up and fight back, never to know defeat, let alone accept it; to have principles and stick by them.
Courage is skill, perseverance, fitness, honesty and fearlessness. It is a big word for very few people.
However, it personifies the beautiful and courageous manner in which a gutsy 15 year old raised thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support and has melted many hearts in the process.
Sam Green wanted to reward Macmillan and Kirkwood Hospice, who lovingly looked after his beloved mum Sarah, a 44-year-old, mother-of-three, from Mirfield who recently lost a brave year-long battle against cancer.
The youngster, along with his team mates at Battyeford Sporting Club, mainly from the boys team, had their heads shaved including Josh, the son of Town chairman, Dean Hoyle.
Around 150 people watched the mass head shave at the club where Huddersfield Town players Michael Hefele and Elias Kachunga assisted the youngsters.

“Sarah and I had been together for 28 years and we had three children, Sam, 15, Josh, 13, and eight-year-old Rebecca who plays for Battyeford Belles.”
Town Chairman, Dean Hoyle, who attended the event along with his wife Janet, praised the manner in which Sam organised the event.
“Josh is 16 and played with Sam for Battyeford Boys since he was seven. I was delighted when Josh told me what he wanted to do though understandably he was rather nervous.
“Everyone has come together for this and it’s been a fantastic turnout.”
A total of £7,564.63 has been raised thus far.
