Ad­dicks men united for run

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

FOR­MER Charl­ton de­fender Phil Chap­ple is used to run­ning the rule over po­ten­tial sign­ings in his role as Ad­dicks chief scout.

Next Sun­day the 48-year-old will be run­ning the streets of the cap­i­tal, how­ever, as one of three mem­bers of Val­ley staff tak­ing part in the Vir­gin Money Lon­don Marathon.

Chap­ple, pic­tured, is rais­ing funds for the Foot­ball League’s part­ner char­ity, Prostate Can­cer UK, and their Men United cam­paign, while goal­keeper coach Ben Roberts and physio Erol Umut don their vests for Asthma UK and Demelza House re­spec­tively.

Us­ing the hash­tag #NotJustAVest, marathon par­tic­i­pants have been shar­ing their rea­sons for run­ning on Twit­ter.

Chap­ple, who also played for Cam­bridge and Peter­bor­ough, said: “I de­cided to run the marathon for Prostate Can­cer UK be­cause I know peo­ple who have suf­fered from it and when you con­sider the odds be­hind con­tract­ing it, you re­ally have to stop and think.”
