Oldham Athletic Five Gearing Up For London To Amsterdam Cycle

10 June 2015

Five representatives from Oldham Athletic are gearing up to take on the London to Amsterdam challenge in aid of Prostate Cancer.

Commercial manager Jenny Warburton will captain the team and this will be her second year in completing the challenge.

She said: "Last year's challenge was hard but a lot of fun. Everyone is very supportive and it makes for a very friendly atmosphere.

"This year I haven't done as much training so it could be a struggle but I will finish the challenge because it's all for a very good cause!"

She will be joined on the trip by her partner Scott Jagger, Latics supporters Rob Stockford and Rick Wallis and the club's safety officer, Brian Lawton.

This will be the first time Lawton has taken part in the challenge and he is excited to get going.

He added: "I'm very prepared for the trip but I don't think I've done enough training. The longest ride I have done is 55km but I've been out on the bike four times a week for the last month or so. 

"I've done similar stuff before, though. I've done 80 miles around Scotland, which included a lot of hills and this is just flat so I know it will be a drag in the last 20 miles but I've got it in the legs.

"I'm expecting a really good team experience. I've not done anything for a charity on this scale before and it means a bit more because it's apart of the club I support and work for. 

"There will be likeminded people to be on the trip who will not be taking it too seriously but we are there for a good cause."

With over £4,000 raised, they are looking for any late donations to reach their £5,000 target.
