Blackpool Football Club loved hearing about Jon taking the ‘tangerine dream’ to Kenya. Jon met the Captain of a football club in the slums of Korogocho and was impressed with their knowledge and passion for the beautiful game. He even parted with his own Blackpool football shirt, leaving a little of the team behind in Kenya.
