The Club has managed to organize a team of 38 people who will be embarking on a fundraising event on Saturday 20th July which will involve playing a game of football on 2 pitches separated by a 77 mile cycle ride at 'halftime'

The 1st half will be played on the oldest pitch in the world (Tower St in Turton), ‘halftime" will be spent cycling from Turton to Burton for the 2nd half, which will to be played on one of the ‘newest’ 4G pitches in the world at St George’s Park, Burton (the new home of the FA)

The aim is to raise at least £5,000 for the Old Boltonians Clubhouse Appeal and SADS UK

The Club has set up a JustGiving page for you to show your support for the event and I would be grateful if you could click on the link below and possibly help us hit our target by donating  




Many thanks for your support


Note - we are still looking for more volunteers to either help in the support vehicles, act as ‘reserves’ for either the football or the cycling or simply support the team with their presence. If anyone is interested please email our Chairman at richardmorris@totalise.co.uk and be prepared to part with £70 (which is the cost of your accommodation in the 4 star Hilton Hotel on the Saturday which is the Chairman’s stag night!!)
