Quartet complete 'Football to Amsterdam' charity bike ride

12 June 2017

Congratulations to Nick Daws, Adam Grice, Hayley Grice and Marie Grice who all tackled the 145-mile ride from Oakwell, Barnsley to the Amsterdam Arena over the weekend.

Backed by the English Football League and the League Managers Association, it's an event football fans can't ignore which propels the awareness of prostate cancer right to the fore of football supporter's minds.

This year 400 football fans, staff and legends of the game embarked on the epic pedal-pilgrimage of 145-miles cycling over two days, all raising money to stop prostate cancer being a killer.

Featuring in the starting line up was Les Ferdinand, Terry Butcher, Viv Anderson, Alan Smith, Sean Davis and Simon Grayson, while it was United's first team coach Daws and assistant club secretary Adam who took part for the Iron along with the latter's two relatives.

In completing the ride, the four riders raised a total of £5429.48 to date for Prostate Cancer UK

For Adam, it was his third consecutive ride to the capital of Holland for Prostate Cancer UK. He's seen the operation grow, with a starting point of London in his first year before the number of riders increased to allow a second starting point in Yorkshire. On returning following the ride, he declared on his Twitter account a figure of over £11,000 raised by him and other participants over the last three rides all representing the Iron. 

Just because the ride is over, doesn't mean you can't still donate to the cause! To sponsor Nick, Adam, Marie and Hayley please visit https://www.justgiving.com/companyteams/ScunthorpeUnitedFC.
