A Trustee of Shrewsbury Town in the Community and lifelong Town fan Nick Jones is tackling the London Marathon on Sunday, along with his friend and work colleague Steve Oliver. They bagged a charity place for the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, who provide invaluable support and equipment to sufferers in and around Shropshire.
Nick, commented, “Even though I made a later start with my training, I am very serious indeed about the event itself and consider myself very fortunate to gain an entry place as it is always heavily oversubscribed. “The Lingen Davies Cancer Fund is an amazing local charity supporting many people with equipment and backing, both for sufferers during and after treatment and helping reduce the effects on family and friends when most needed. “As work colleagues there is obviously a lot of competitive banter going around the office which all adds to the build-up and excitement, Steve is a far better runner than me and is aiming for a time of four hours so I will be delighted to stagger home with a time of four hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds if possible!”

Good luck Nick and Steve from everyone at Shrewsbury Town, a tremendous effort for a very worthwhile cause!
