THE DAUGHTER of Bro Cernyw manager Russell Pursell is planning a gruelling charity challenge to raise funds for the club.

Megan Pursell, who also plays for the North Football Association’s U16 side, has set herself the daunting task of running 100 kilometres over the next two weeks.

All proceeds going towards the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division side’s quest to meet the new ground criteria being implemented by the Football Association of Wales next season.

This will mainly be used for the purchase of new dugouts and a barrier to put around the pitch.

She has set a target of £4,000 from the challenge, with a flood of early donations ensuring Megan is almost one-quarter of the way to her target.

A post on Megan’s JustGiving page, said: “To ensure that the local community football team continues to play in the current league, aim for promotion to a higher league and continue to provide sports facilities for the local community for future generations, we need to ensure our ground meets the new Welsh Football Association criteria.

“We have started fundraising activities but we also looking out for local people and businesses to sponsor the club and help with our project.

“The main expenses are to provide dugouts for both home and away teams and to ensure that we have spectator safety barriers in place.

“I am going to be running 100k over two weeks in the hills and valleys around Llangernyw and I am aiming to raise as much money as possible to help hit our target of £4,000.”
