York on their bikes for David

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

FOOT­BALL ri­valry will be put to one side in two weeks as 12 York fans are set to cy­cle the 150 miles for City’s clash with Northamp­ton.

Cob­blers fan David Hen­der­son died fol­low­ing a heart attack out­side Six­fields af­ter the two teams met last sea­son and the cy­cle is all to raise money for Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion.

Dan Water­worth and friends are set to make the trip from Bootham Cres­cent to Six­fields for the match on Fe­bru­ary 21, leav­ing two days be­fore kick-off.

And af­ter wit­ness­ing the tragedy in Jan­uary last year, Water­worth was in­spired to com­plete the chal­lenge.

He said: “The ter­ri­ble scenes took place in front of hun­dreds of fans that were walk­ing away from the sta­dium and fans from both teams were at­tempt­ing to save David’s life.

“My­self and 11 other York fans de­cided, af­ter wit­ness­ing the sad pass­ing of David, that we would com­plete a cy­cle to Northamp­ton when the two sides meet this sea­son.”
