150 mile challenge

Three cricket-loving team mates are planning to walk 150 miles to Lord’s cricket ground to raise money for Darley Dale Cricket Club, Cancer Research UK and the Matlock Hospital’s League of Friends.

Teacher Johnny Shaw (26), university lecturer Stuart Taylor (34) and IT systems engineer Jon Cooper (34) will embark on the foor-blistering voyage on February 16 to celebrate the club’s 150th anniversary.

The trio, who all hail from Matlock, will walk more than 20 miles for eight days and will make pit-stops at numerous cricket grounds along the way.

Stuart said: “Hopefully we can keep the club’s legacy alive for another 150 years.
