Tony Pring on his Bike!

30 April 2014

Charity Collection Saturday for Prostate Cancer UK

There will be a collection on Saturday at the Rochdale AFC game for Prostate Cancer UK, the Football League's designated charity this season. County's Tony Pring is taking part in a bike ride from London to Amsterdam in June and you can donate here:

Newport County AFC is asking all fans to support our very own Tony Pring who is the club’s nominee to cycle from London to Amsterdam for the Prostate Cancer UK (PCUK) charity. This is a nationwide challenge with every Football League club nominating an individual for this special bike ride that opens on 6th June at Leyton Orient FC and is scheduled to finish at AFC Ajax on June 8th. 

The route will head out of London, through 90 miles of rural countryside to Harwich where a ferry will take the group across the channel overnight to Hook in Holland. On the Saturday (June 7th) a further 60 miles will be cycled through the flat landscape of the Dutch Zeeland before arriving at Ajax. 

The evening will be spent celebrating the achievements of this great event in the centre of Amsterdam with a celebratory dinner. On the Sunday the team will be able to recuperate by returning to London on the Eurostar after lunch.

Good luck Tony from all the County
