SADDLERS STRIDE WITH STELLING TODAY

26 March 2016

Walsall FC officials to walk with TV personality for charity...

A DELEGATION of Walsall FC officials will be joining TV personality, Jeff Stelling for a leg of his Men United March in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.

The Sky Sports presenter is walking 10 marathons in 10 days from Hartlepool United to Wembley Stadium to help beat prostate cancer.

From 21-30 March 2016, he is walking through the heartlands of England to raise money to beat a disease killing one man every hour and the Saddlers have pledged our support.

Walsall CEO Stefan Gamble, Club Secretary and Director Daniel Mole, Commercial Manager Wayne Thomas and Board members Nigel Bond and Richard Tisdale will be covering the 6.4 mile trip from Walsall to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday 26th March.

The Soccer AM cameras, which at the time of passing the Banks’s Stadium at 10.30am will be live on air, are likely to capture some of the 10km stroll to help promote the initiative.

Jeff will also be joined on various legs of the journey by a select band of Men United supporters including his mates from Soccer Saturday including Matt Le Tissier, Chris Kamara, Paul Merson, and Charlie Nicholas.

 “We’re delighted to be able to join Jeff on Day 6 of his fantastic March for Men United,” said Walsall CEO Stefan Gamble. “Prostate cancer kills 10,000 men each and every year and the disease will have undoubtedly affected some of our supporters during their lifetime too.

"As a club we have always been committed to supporting charitable causes and simply spending a Saturday morning out in the fresh air, walking together is the very least we can do.

"On behalf of Walsall Football Club, I’d like to wish Jeff the very best of luck on his journey and look forward to joining him here in the West Midlands.”

A target of £100,000 has been set for Jeff’s Men United March.
