Premier League referees' charity cycle to the Liberty
14th July 2016
Premier League referees Martin Atkinson and Jon Moss will pay a visit to the Liberty Stadium on Friday morning as part of their 1,000-mile bike ride for charity.
The duo will stop off in Swansea to conduct a special Q&A session with young local referees at the Liberty before setting off for Midlands-based Premier League clubs West Bromwich Albion and Leicester City.
Atkinson and Moss embarked on their 1,000 mile challenge to cycle between all 20 top division clubs in the space of nine days with the aim of raising £50,000 for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and the Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation.
Alongside a team of 'domestiques', the Premier League referees began their 'Whistle Stop Tour' in the sunshine of Watford on Tuesday, July 12, and will end their mammoth journey in Sunderland on Wednesday, July 20.
"This is a major challenge and we are looking forward to it with some excitement and some trepidation," said Moss, prior to the start of their cycle. "We really will be seeing the Premier League clubs from a different perspective and we look forward to meeting both club personnel and fans along the way.
"Our chosen charities are both relatively small but we have seen their work at first hand and what a tremendous job they do and that is why we wanted to raise funds for them."
