Members of Boston United’s youth team will mark the final home game of the season by holding a charity bike ride.

The youngsters will set off from North Ferriby - the Pilgrims’ opponents that afternoon - on April 21, a Bank Holiday Monday.

They will cross the Humber and head back to York Street, aiming to arrive at the ground in time for kick off.

The team of around 25 cyclists - most of whom represent the club at differing youth levels - will set off at 7am

They are hoping to complete the 62-mile journey in seven-and-a-half hours so they can get a well-earned rest before taking their seats for the match.

Each competitor has set themselves a target of raising at least £50 - a grand total of more than £1,000 - which will go towards the Teenage Brain Tumour Research Centre.

The youngsters are also hoping to hold a bucket collection at half time and full time in order to get some loose change from the fans as well.

A chairty box will also be kept at the stadium for supporters unable to make it to the Ferriby match.
