Well, well, well... The Villa ladies are putting the men to shame!
Rebecca Starkey, Katherine Horder, Andrea Hartman, Hayley Lingard, Becky Davis, Lauren O'Hara, Tracy Piper, Stacey Cliff, Laura Sensier, Sheila Maybury, Tracy Bailey, Nicky Keye and Nicky Salt are all in training for Race for Life.
Where are the lads hiding? Scared I guess?!?!?!? (I`ll get slaughtered for this!)
The 5km event takes place in Sutton Park on Saturday June 16. They are representing Villa and donning claret and blue tops to help raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Villa's group of ladies have set a target of £500 and you can help donate by logging on to their website: Click Here.
Team spokesperson Rebecca Starkey said: 'I'm not sure any of us will be able to match Gabby Agbonlahor's pace on the pitch but we'll be giving it everything we've got to do Villa proud. But it's not about how quickly you finish, in reality, it's all about competing, finishing the course, having a good day-out and achieving the target we've set for ourselves. We're all looking forward to it and it's great to think we're doing it all for a very worthwhile cause. It's even more relevant this year with the news of Stiliyan's illness. We'll all be thinking about him as we compete. Let's hope we can show his battling qualities as we make our way around the course.'
If you have a spare quid or two, feel free to donate, only takes a few minutes via the JustGiving page: www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/aston-villa-fc .
I`m told the lads at Villa are considering a sponsored watch a game event where they sit for 90 minutes watching a game of football. True dedication lads, true dedication.
