Roads To Wembley – Thank You

It’s time to take a week off and recharge the batteries ready for next season, after an amazing few days which brought to an end a wonderful season for Free Kicks and Peterborough United.

Before I do that, I have to say some personal thank you’s to many people who made The Roads To Wembley a success.

Firstly of course the team who started the walk:

Spencer Austin, Matthew Booth, Andrew Clements, James Cruickshank, Wayne Daly, Sam Downing, Chris Dowsett, Ian Hair, Dawn Livingstone, Andy Mason, Cyndee Mitchell, Nilesh Patel and Chris Sharpe.

The people who came along to join us later along the route:

The Cookies Graham, Sally, Sam and Jamie, Dan Levene, Sam Thorpe and Gemma Wilson.

Andy Mills for giving up his time to deliver us safely to Barnet on Thursday morning and back to Peterborough on Saturday evening.

Fuller’s for their hospitality, great buffet and free beer at The Crown and Sceptre in Shepherd’s Bush and The Griffin in Brentford.

Nigel Cole for designing the brilliant logo for our t-shirts.

Nick Sheppard and Peterborough United for the loan of the minibus and a full tank of diesel.

My bosses at EDF Energy for allowing Neil, Bryan, Marc and Simeon to move our bags about from hotel to hotel in their vans.

Premier Inn at Wembley Park for looking after our bags on Saturday, on what must have been a very busy day for them!

The lovely people at Dagenham & Redbridge, Charlton, Millwall and Leyton Orient who let us into their grounds for pictures.

BBC Cambridgeshire, BBC London Sport and Peterborough Evening Telegraph for their coverage.

Everybody who sent us messages on Twitter, facebook or by text en route to keep us going.

And of course last but not least, the numerous people who have sponsored us online, via text or on paper forms. As well as the generous folk who shoved cash in our hands while we were walking and even at Old Trafford on Sunday, where I had Posh fans coming up to me and handing over £20 and £10 notes.

Once I get the full collection of pictures, I will post them on here..
