Yeovil Town supports fundraiser from ex-player diagnosed with MND

YEOVIL Town FC are supporting a fundraiser featuring the likes of Paul Scholes and Jill Scott to help in the battle against Motor Neurone Disease.

March of the Day sees more than 50 former professional footballers walk 178 miles to raise money for the Darby Rimmer MND foundation.

Arranged by ex-pros Stephen Darby and Marcus Stewart, who have both been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, it will take place over three days.

Stewart scored 14 goals for the Glovers in 73 appearances between 2006 and 2008, and currently serves as head of player development.

Manchester United legend Scholes and European champion Scott are already signed up for the trek, which starts at Bradford, where Darby made more than 200 senior appearances, and ends at Liverpool, where he began his career.

The grounds of 17 league clubs will be visited along the way, including Manchester City, Everton, and Yeovil Town.

In addition to being one of these destinations, Yeovil Town donated £1,000 to the fundraiser.
