Men’s football club host a nine hour row and ride event for Welsh charity

SWANSEA men’s football club have raised over £1000 following a charity row and ride event in aid of Wales Air Ambulance.

Treasurer Zac Shayler urged others to follow their example and do more for charity, following the success of the row and ride event.

“I definitely believe clubs should do more,” said Shayler.

“Clubs have the availability of willing individuals to take part at their disposal.

“I don’t know why you don’t see more events like this.

“You should support as many charitable causes as you can as both a club and as an individual.”

The football club’s target distance was 100km.

With only time against them, Swansea’s footballers were determined to show what they were made of.

At the halfway mark Swansea were on target, having rowed 50km.

As the team continued to push, the sun set in front of them which brought with it more issues for the participants.

Shayler described the temperatures they faced as “Baltic” as the 6pm deadline approached.

Swansea men’s football finished with an incredible 128km on the rowing machine.

This amounts to rowing across the English channel.

The team also rode the equivalent of Swansea to London on the bike.
