Wyrley Juniors FC Mens First Team completed a 10 mile Sponsored Walk on Saturday from Walsall FC, The Banks’ Stadium to the Ascot Tavern Cannock raising in excess of £1,000 in the process.
Manager Phil McGuinness (who wore the Walsall ‘Swifty’ Mascot costume throughout the walk), Assistant Manager Paul Baker and Secretary Trevor Foster were joined by the Squad and some of the players children for the walk which was organised to raise funds for Meningitis UK and towards the running costs of the Mens Team. The age of the participants ranged from 50 years old to 11 year old Scott Baker and 4 year old Korey Brough.
It was a really good effort from all involved and its pleasing to have raised a large amount of money for a good cause. The team had a lot of help organising this event and we would like to Thank Corky’s Corporate Cars for kindly providing Minibuses to ferry us to Walsall FC, The Ascot Tavern for allowing us to use the Pub as a meeting and finishing point, Walsall FC for the loan of the ‘Swifty’ costume, Trevor Foster for coming up with the idea and to all of the team for taking part.
The walk took the team a total of 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete and they took in Walsall Town Centre, Leamore, Bloxwich Town Centre and Great Wyrley on their way to the finishing line. The team would like to Thank everybody who cheered them on and everybody who kindly sponsored us.
