Sport students and staff help charity footballers break Guinness World Record

Students and staff from the London Sport Institute at Middlesex University are celebrating after helping a team of footballers break a Guinness World Record for the longest game of five-a-side football.

Over three days last week at the Chestnut Grove Academy in south London the Middlesex team provided massages to the squad of 16 players to enable their legs to withstand nine gruelling five-hour shifts on the indoor court, with only three hours’ rest between each.

The players were raising money for Football Beyond Borders, an education charity which uses football to help engage disadvantaged young people and enable them to achieve their potential. So far the players have raised more than £13,000 and are looking for further donations.

Speaking during a massage session 40 hours into the challenge, Ed (pictured) said he had only had about three hours’ sleep. Associate Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Science (Rehab) Ebony Fewkes (pictured far left) said she expected to see more players getting cramps as they became increasingly fatigued going into the final day of the match.

Sport Rehabilitation and Sports Physiotherapy and Exercise Medicine Programme Leader Clare Deary was proud of the Middlesex team’s performance.

“Middlesex University were delighted to support the world record attempt and as usual the students on all three of our Sport Rehabilitation and Sport Physiotherapy courses were quick to volunteer to put the hours in for this fantastic charity," she said.

“Our students and staff were on hand to massage the tired legs of the athletes and help keep them going until the end of the event and I am particularly proud of the effort they put in and their contribution to this World Record.”

The players themselves were equally full of praise, commenting: "The students were more than helpful, all had a great attitude and literally made sure our bodies didn’t fall apart. Without them I don’t think any of us would have been able to complete the challenge.

"Massive congratulations from all of us as you were part of this challenge."

The Middlesex team of staff, undergraduate and postgraduate Sport and Exercise Rehabilitation students and physiotherapists studying for their MSc in Sport Physiotherapy and Exercise Medicine were: Gabby Lang, Mohammed Aboudaoud, Dawit Mehari, Chloe Lloyd, Asshwin Giridaran, Adam Koziej, Angel Warren, April Vismonte, Azoulas Byla, Rui Dinis Costa, Amrit Panesar, Bethany Catchpole, Espen Johnsen, Jose Sharps, Abigail Smith, Adam Johnson, Ben Edmonds, Vicky Stones, Alice Rollinson, Adriana Rosa, Ebony Fewkes, Lorenzo Forghieri, Jess Cato, Callum Barney, Ahmed Bouhalla, Georgina Allen, Carlos Lima D’Assuncao, Shona Miranda, Asshwin Giridaran, Monika Smiechowska, Balraj Osahan, Doris Likcani, Dawit Mehari, Jordi Ungudi, Ajishola Fadojutimi and Mike Griffiths.

And as for the final score, it finished 1,426 to the white team and 1,407 to the black team!
