MEMBERS of St Day AFC have walked, ran and cycled more than 3,000 miles to raise money for the club.

With football off limits due to the Coronavirus pandemic, players, coaches, families and committee members from the football club have been busy virtually visiting every football league ground in England, Wales and Scotland in order to boost the club’s funds.

The challenge was no mean feat, with the intrepid team starting at St Day Football Club and visiting all 134 league grounds before finishing at Wembley Stadium within three weeks – a trek that spanned a grand total of 3458.6 miles.

Due to the lockdown visiting every ground in person was impossible, so using a bit of St Day sophistication the club decided to call their members into action, asking them to walk, run, ride – and sometimes crawl – as far as they could and then submit their distances, with one family even covering more than 1,000 miles on their own.

The club kept a running total of all members' efforts, with club member and organiser Peter Carpenter providing information and trivia on each ground on the club's Facebook page as they "passed" each one.

The club virtually rolled down Wembley Way to reach the the home of English football on Sunday, June 21, with more than 3,000 miles and more than £800 raised.

That money will go towards the £7,000 cost of the recent work to the club's Vogue Park ground – which they have dubbed the 'Cornish Wembley' – to completely level major undulations on their sporting pitches, thus ensuring a high quality surface for both football and cricket to be played on.

Further fundraising will be taking place and plans are already a foot for a football ground trivia quiz.
