    Story

    The grass keeps growing, but the mower isn't going....

    Imagine a field full of footballers from 6 years old through to 66, every game a fair battle to win, lose or draw. But not for our grass, it's a hardy perennial winner against our poor old mower.

    Long Bennington Football Club is a proud integral part of the local community. It is a Charter Community Standard football club - the highest achievable by a football club outside the professional ranks. We have 18 teams - young to old, boys and girls, gentlemen and ladies.

    The challenge to raise funds:

    On Saturday 30rd September a number of players from the Vets team embarking on a 112 mile cycle ride to visit the stadia of the four footballing giants of the area - Lincoln City, Notts County, Nottingham Forest and Grantham Town. Just like our football - we love our cycling, but we're no good at it. This is without doubt an opportunity to sponsor someone for guaranteed suffering. And of that, there will be plenty....

      We managed to complete the ride on what was thankfully a gorgeous September day. A late in the day soaking just provided a welcome shower. You'll be pleased to know the ride had its share of injury and discomfort. Without going into details about which parts are feeling it most, I'll just say stairs and chairs are a challenge. I hope that satisfies you sadist sponsors out there, Alan.... Thanks to you all for donating and helping us on our way and LBFC on their way to a mowing tractor thing. https://www.strava.com/activities/1210628179
