BRIDGWATER Town and Yeovil United – both owned by the Robins’ new boss Adam Murry – are joining forces to raise much-needed funds and awareness for local charities in the area.
Players and officials are taking up the challenge to take to the streets to complete 26.2 miles by foot, in no more than 24 hours, on February 6.
The aim is to raise £10,000 through a ’50 For Bridgy’ event – 50 marathons in a day for the town.
With both men’s and women’s football suspended until at least the middle of February – Yeovil United have evolved from the former Yeovil Town ladies – each club’s senior squad and management, including Adam Murry and Chairman Bob Buckingham, will be taking on the gruelling challenge.
The funds raised will go to support organisations such as Bridgwater Foodbank and other deserving charities.
