Addicks men united for run
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.”
