Euro 2020 has been conquered – and now the players at Pendine AFC are gunning for Qatar.

Well in terms of mileage at least. The Seagulls have been tacking their 'Road to Euros' challenge and between were taked with running or cycling 10,000 miles - the equivalent distance of visiting each of the proposed 12 host cities across Europe. 

It matches the miles covered by trips from Pendine to Amsterdam, Baku, Bilbao, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome, St Petersburg, and London.

But like with other clubs, the charity challenge, with funds raised going to the Hywel Dda Health Board, gathered serious momentum and the players completed their task on June 29th after just 18 days – two weeks ahead of schedule.

That doesn’t mean things have stopped though, and the club have now reset their goal and added on another 4,428 miles, the distance of Pendine to 2022 World Cup venue Qatar. With just seven days left, they collectively have around 2000 miles left to cover.

And they’ve received some high profile encouragement along the way, with the likes of Lee Trundle, Shane Williams, Sam Warburton and Ken Owens all sending video messages of support.

“It's an incredible achievement from the boys,” said player manager Justin Blewitt.

“We had 32 days to complete the 10,000 mile trip and we thought that would be tough to be honest, so to have passed it in just 18 days is a phenomenal effort.

“The hard work put in by everyone has been outstanding, from our 66-year-old chairman right down to a few of our former junior players - some as young as 9 and 10-years-old. It makes us all very proud to be a part of this club and if anyone can donate to show your appreciation for our hard working NHS staff it would be much appreciated.”

Thus far, more than £3,400 has been raised and to donate to the cause, click here.
