BURTON Albion supporter Craig Tucker will be cycling from London to Amsterdam on behalf of Prostate Cancer UK as part of the London to Amsterdam Football League Challenge next month.

Keen cyclist Craig will be looking to raise more than £1,000 ahead of the challenge which will see every club in the Football League represented on June 8.

The event has a footballing theme throughout with the cyclists beginning the challenge at Leyton Orient’s Matchroom Stadium and finishing at Ajax’s Amsterdam Arena.

The 45-year-old has worked hard to raise money for the bike ride, and is looking for one final push before he starts the challenge in two weeks.

He said: “It is really great to be a part of and as a Burton Albion fan it is fantastic to represent the club on a charity event such as this.

“It is a cancer that a few of my close friends have had and to be able to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK is brilliant.

“It should be a fun two days.”
