Justin has returned to Latvia for a few weeks, which is ideal for trying to get in shape for the football marathon, as he can train with Riga United a couple of times per week. The city is full of green spaces and is a good place to cycle and jog, which is as well as he needs to lose a lot of weight and get himself much fitter if he is to survive 12 hours of football on June 17th in London.
Our team now has six players confirmed with Latvian Mārtiņš Akmentiņš joining us. He is a really decent player so great to have him on the team. He scored a lot of goals in the Latvian league when he last lived in Latvia.
We still need two more players with American pro keeper Matt Perella unable to get over from the States to join us as he had wished, and two German friends - Niels and Julian - also unable to come now due to them having medical exams around the time of the fundraiser.
We hope to set up our fundraising page this weekend.
