How often do you hear about players fundraising for their club? Well that is exactly what the current first team squad are doing at Stocksbridge Park Steels. Not only did they all waved wages owed, thrown in their end of season kitty & some turned down tempting offers to play elsewhere. Now they are planning on running 100KM from Chesterfield via stops at Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley on the way before finishing the route at the home of Stocksbridge Park Steels, Bracken Moor. The aim is for as many as possible to run the final section from Fox Valley up to the ground as possible.
The team aims to raise £1K for the club and are doing the fundraising via Facebook. Soon as I got wind of this I put my name into the hat and will now be helping the team by running the 5th leg from Barnsley all the way to Stocksbridge, the route is just over 16KM. The event will take place on the 20th June. I will be keeping you all posted once more details are released. If you can please consider sponsoring me for this even and help keep my local community non league club afloat.
