Premier League referees cycle to all clubs for charity

by CyclingTips

Two Premier League referees are cycling 1,000 miles to all 20 top division clubs across England and Wales over nine days to raise money for charity.

Starting in Watford on July 12, Jon Moss and Martin Atkinson aim to raise £50,000 for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and the Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation.

“This is a major challenge and we are looking forward to it with some excitement and some trepidation,” said Moss. “We really will be seeing the Premier League clubs from a different perspective and we look forward to meeting both club personnel and fans along the way.

“Our chosen charities are both relatively small but we have seen their work at first hand and what a tremendous job they do and that is why we wanted to raise funds for them.”

Atkinson just returned from officiating at the Euro 2016 tournament.
