Two Grecians and Three Bulls

Two Exeter City supporters are to join three Hereford United supporters in their attempt to visit all 92 Premier and League grounds in 80 hours with the aim of raising money for the Adam Stansfield Foundation. And the new car they will use has been kindly supplied by a Hereford garage.

Katie Blackburn and her partner Chris Sumner, who is also City's Grecian the Lion mascot will join up with Hereford supporters Adam Wright, his stepfather Steve Fowler and friend Dave Jones.

"Some clubs have kindly agreed to provide us with food and drinks and we will be taking photographs at each of the grounds to prove we've been there," Katie told the Express and Echo.

"We want to do it in the shortest time possible, beating the 92 hours set by Peterborough United who raised money for one of their charities in a similar way.

"It is a tough challenge, but we are all looking forward to the adventure and, of course, visiting some of the famous Premiership grounds like Old Trafford, Anfield, and the other St James's Park in Newcastle.

"We will take it in turns to drive after a garage in Hereford kindly loaned us a new car, so we will be travelling around the clock to complete all the grounds in a breathtaking 80 hours."
