Are U’s hun­gry to face Liam?

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

EVER wanted to take on a pro­fes­sional foot­ball player at a cracker-eat­ing chal­lenge? Well one lucky Cam­bridge United fan will get to do just that against U’s mid­fielder Liam Hughes in the Mick Ge­orge Chal­lenge a Pro com­pe­ti­tion.

The League Two club’s kit spon­sors have in­vited sup­port­ers over the age of 16 to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion to face the 23-year-old in ten dif­fer­ent tasks, in­clud­ing: ta­ble ten­nis, ques­tion of sport and a cracker chal­lenge.

The Chal­lenge a Pro com­pe­ti­tion will be filmed over the next cou­ple of months, with United fans given the op­por­tu­nity to win some ex­clu­sive prizes by guess­ing the out­come of each task be­tween the fan and player.

Jon Stump, Mick Ge­orge Ltd fi­nance di­rec­tor, said: “It’s not ev­ery day that you get the chance to com­pete with a pro­fes­sional foot­baller but the Chal­lenge a Pro com­pe­ti­tion pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for one lucky U’s fan to test them­selves against their he­roes.

“The talk around the dress­ing room is that Liam is not tak­ing any chances with this and is putting the ex­tra hours in to make sure he is ready for the com­pe­ti­tion.”
