Hero Jim helps Dons lift #FFITCup 2019
Written By SPFL Trust Media Centre
Aberdeen’s FFIT Legends triumphed in this year’s Football Fans in Training Tournament here at the University of Stirling, today.
The victory was a remarkable triumph, particularly for goalkeeper Jim Blagden, who has lost a staggering nine stone over the last twelve months.
Jim was the hero saving four penalties to hand the trophy to Aberdeen for the first time (4-3) with the shootout going to sudden death after both keepers failed to score.
We’ll be sharing more of Jim’s story in the weeks ahead.
In the ‘best of the rest’ tournament, Dunfermline defeated Livingston 2-0.
