UNBELIEVABLE JEFF! 'MARCH FOR MEN' ARRIVES AT CITY

13 June 2017

Jeff Stelling successfully completed his twelfth marathon in successive days by arriving safely at the Northern Commercials Stadium this Tuesday (13 June 2017) evening.

Stelling’s March for Men is taking the Sky Sports presenter around the country to raise awareness and funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

After completing ten marathons for the charity last year, Stelling is going to greater lengths this time around by walking 15 marathons in 15 days.

Jeff's walk from Barnsley's Oakwell Stadium to Bradford this Tuesday saw the 63 year-old tick off marathon number twelve.

The TV personality was joined on his latest charity trek by former City players and managers, Chris Kamara and Paul Jewell.

Ex-Rotherham United and Tranmere Rovers boss Ronnie Moore also took part in Tuesday's walk.

Speaking after his arrival at the Northern Commercials Stadium, Stelling said: "I think we've walked over 300 miles now in total, so you can almost see the finishing line going into these last three days.

"People think prostate cancer is an old man's disease, but it can affect people in the prime of their lives as well.

"It doesn't just affect the men themselves either, it can affect their partners and family as well.

"It took us about nine hours to do the walk today and in that time, nine men in the UK will die from prostate cancer."

Kamara added: "I think we are going to have to change the catchphrase to 'Unbelievable Sir Jeff'!

"He deserves nothing less for all the charity work he has done - it has been absolutely amazing."

The next leg of Jeff's March for Men will see him walk from Harrogate Town to Bedale Town via Ripon City on Wednesday.

The plan is then to complete the final marathon at Newcastle United on Friday evening.
