Meet The Real Football Heroes, WIN FA Cup Final Tickets With E.ON – No.2: Cedric From Swindon

The FA Cup final is almost upon us and Portsmouth and Chelsea will soon be battling to win the world’s premier domestic cup competition. Along with the FA Cup sponsor E.ON, we think this is a great time to salute some of football’s unsung heroes, specifically goalkeepers. They may be stars of tomorrow, or just players who have given a lot back to their community. So over the next few weeks we are going to highlight some very special individuals.

Today’s hero is a man with two passions in life – football and pork pies. Cedric plies his trade for Swindon Leopards – a team for adults with learning disabilities in the South West Ability Counts League – and is affectionately known as ‘Pork Pie’ to his team mates. Coined because of an obsession with the humble pork pie, Cedric brings his ‘secret weapon’ to every match without fail – and the bigger the better. On his ‘Life Between the Sticks’ portrait, Cedric said: “I live, breathe and sleep goalkeeping, so this whole experience has been really exciting. I can’t wait to see me and my pork pie alongside the other goalkeepers, not to mention the England legends – what an honour.”
