THREE intrepid Whitby Town supporters are travelling to their away match at Pickering this Tuesday (31 July) - on foot.
Andrew Snaith (29), Andy Lever (44) and Devan Robson (20) set off from the Turnbull Ground, Whitby, at 7am and are hoping to arrive at the Pikes’ Mill Lane home in time for the 7.30pm kick-off.
Andrew said: “I’m dreading two bits really - getting up before seven o’clock, which seems wrong on so many levels and having to scale Blue Bank.
“If I’m still moving at that point, I’ll count it as a bonus.
“Hopefully our ace cartographer will find an alternative, less uphill route.”
All money raised by the trio will go to Whitby Town Football Club and people can sponsor them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or adding their name and pledging money on a form in the Whitby Town clubhouse.
The Blues host Middlesbrough Reserves tomorrow (Sat) with a 3pm kick-off.
