Club backs charity Stadium Challenge

Bristol City Football Club was proud to welcome a charity fundraiser, who is visiting all 92 stadiums of Premier League and Football League clubs.

Chris Cowlin has tasked himself with running around each stadium in 12 days, while raising money for the Willow Foundation.

He visited Ashton Gate on Thursday (June 7th) on day four of his England and Wales-wide challenge.

Former City player-turned kitman Scott Murray was on hand to welcome Chris on Thursday morning, presenting him with two signed and match-worn boots as well as a signed Manchester City programme.

The club legend even ran around the stadium with Chris, who is promoting his challenge via Twitter

Chris said: "I am so excited by this challenge, it is something different and it's all over the country.

"I have heard and read that many fans have done the 92 grounds, but no one has ever done this challenge before, running around all of the grounds."

He added: "It is a new challenge for me running 50-odd miles in 12 days...I love helping people and raising money for charty, particularly Willow, who provide such great and memorial days for seriously ill young adults."

Chris went on to Forest Green Rovers' New Lawn after departing BS3, before heading to the Cardiff City Stadium, Swansea City's Liberty Stadium and the County Ground at Swindon Town.

The Willow Foundation was set up by former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson and his wife, whose daughter died from cancer aged 31.
