Players complete 250 mile challenge

10 months ago By Barry Town Utd Ladies FC

Players, parents and coaches came together on Sat 13th January to complete a fantastic 250 mile football dribble challenge at Jenner Park Stadium.

“The fundraiser was a great success and full credit to all the players, coaches and parents that took part. They all got through a lot of laps to ensure we were able to complete the challenge.” Luke Williams (Chairman)

Members from all sections of the club turned out in force for the club fundraiser in an attempt to dribble a combined total of 250 miles around Jenner Park Stadium, that's a whopping 1,016 laps.

It took just under 3 hours for the challenge to be completed and the event has been a great success with over £1,000 already collected from sponsorship money that will help the club through the winter period.

Following the match, our Under 8 and Under 10 players were given a fantastic opportunity as mascots for the men's home team match against Bala Town and experienced playing on the Jenner Park Stadium pitch at half time.

Chairman, Luke Williams commented; "The fundraiser was a great success and full credit to all the players, coaches and parents that took part. They all got through a lot of laps to ensure we were able to complete the challenge and the sponsorship received to date will definitely help us through the remaining winter months."

This was the first club fundraiser of the season with another event anticipated in the summer.
