120 mile bike ride

I coach a team of young football players called Thirsk Falcons Blues Under 9s.  We have been together now as a team for two seasons and the improvement that I have seen in this team is incredible.  They are all extremely committed and great friends. The players are unusually special because they have learnt at this young age that this isn't a game about individuals. undoubtedly they are all brilliant individual players with their own unique talents, what makes this team so amazing is that they know how to work as a team and by doing so they play some amazing football. I genuinely believe that this team are capable of great things and I really want to give them the opportunity to test themselves against a different level of players and in a venue which will allow them to make some life-lasting memories.  I am raising money to help them achieve this goal of playing in a tournament abroad in Summer 2021. They are really missing their football and each other with all that is going on at the moment, I want to give them something amazing to look forward to next year. I am biking to each of the 11 players' homes to present them with their trophies that they acheived this season.   Saturday 6th of June - starting at                           Northallerton to new marske and back to         Northallerton- 60+ miles on a road bike. Sunday 7th of June - starting at North Stainley To Sinderby, Thirsk, Dishforth, Ripon,                 Grewelthorpe and back to North Stainley - 55+ miles on a mountain bike. It's going to be great to see all the kids and there faces when I deliver there trophies. The trophies were voted for by the children so they have no idea who has won which trophy. If you feel you would like to sponsor me on my 120 mile bike journey (I'm a novice bike rider so this is definitely not something that I am undertaking lightly!), please let me know. All donations would be a huge help in the kids realising their dream of playing abroad next summer and give them something to look forward to and a boost in these tough times. Thanks Gaz
