No rest for th­ese trav­ellers

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

THERE’S no match at the Abbey Sta­dium to­day but a car full of fans should still pull into the home of Cam­bridge United after com­plet­ing a re­mark­able chal­lenge.

Marc Pat­ter­son, John Wy­att, Ron Martin and Bill Goss left Nor­wich’s Car­row Road on Thurs­day af­ter­noon and have driven day and night to visit all 92 grounds in the Premier League and Foot­ball League in aid of the Men’s Prostate Can­cer UK char­ity.

They aim to ar­rive back at Cam­bridge within 72 hours of leav­ing.

Head­ing into Wales on Fri­day af­ter­noon, Goss said: “We’ve been on the road just over 24 hours and so far spir­its are still high.

“We are be­ing sen­si­ble about it, each hav­ing four hour stints driv­ing but you don’t get to sleep prop­erly be­cause we have to get out and do ten keepy-up­pies at ev­ery ground!

“Prostate Can­cer UK have played a big part in the Foot­ball League this year. Our fam­i­lies have all been af­fected through can­cer so it’s great to be rais­ing money.”
