It was a positive morning on Saturday as St Agnes AFC Dis-Ability Squad returned to training; their first session back since lockdown.
During the session the squad all completed 100 steps to finish off their 100 mile lockdown fundraising initiative, set for them by their Coach Hailey Collins.
Collectively the players and coaches smashed the distance by walking, running, rolling and more than doubled the 100 mile challenge!
• League player Andrew walked a mile a day
• Championship player Conor cycled four miles a day
• Championship Matt walked his dog Jet in Crenver Woods
• League player Jed (pictured) did 8.1 miles in one go to try and out distance Coach Hailey
• Lucy - Young Leader (and club girls team player) Lucy who helps support youth disability players got involved, cycling 11.1 miles on the Bissoe to Devoran Tramway and raised £60 to support the team
Their fundraising from crowdfunding and sponsorship was set at a £500 target for squad funds and, with the total presently at £700 and rising, the players and coaches would like to thank everyone who’s supported them.
Every penny raised will be used to support the St Agnes AFC Dis-Ability Squad and ensure sessions are sustainable, affordable and accessible for everyone. They have already purchased new balls, cones, bibs, 'keeper gloves and First Aid, with some other training items on order from Coach Hailey's wish list.
St Agnes AFC Dis-Ability Adults sessions will continue at Truro College. New adult male and female players (youth and adult) are all welcome.
