Football News: Players Foundation faces criticism from Dementia charity for insufficient aid to ex-footballers

Former players with dementia have been left struggling to pay for their residential care, according to a charity that has stepped in to offer financial support. Head for Change has donated £3,000 to each of three former players – Manchester United and Scotland international Gordon McQueen, ex-Blackburn midfielder Tony Parkes, and former Huddersfield and Bradford forward Allan Gilliver – who are suffering from advanced dementia. The Players Foundation, the former charitable arm of the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA), has been criticised for refusing to contribute. The PFA and other organisations are examining how they can best support dementia sufferers.
