A St Albans father and three friends will attempt to visit all 92 FA football grounds in 92 hours next month.

Matthew Bigg, 37, from St Albans, is planning to raise money for his eight-year-old son Alfie's football team Harvesters FC.

He will be joined by his dad Colin, and friends Simon Dickerson and Kris Babb.

The mammoth drive will start at 9am on April 27 at Watford FC and aim to finish at Brighton and Hove Albion by 3pm on April 30.

With each visit to a club, the group of four will be pictured outside and collect memorabilia along the way.

"It's all about supporting grass routes football," Mr Bigg said.

"A lot of us fans have started to fear that our young players may lose some of the excitement and passion."

He added: "We hope this event might put the aspiration of young footballers back on the map."

Harvesters FC was established in 1989 after a large increase of interest in youth football amongst local residents around Jersey Farm.

Since then the club has gone on from strength to strength with teams for both boys and girls in several different age groups.

Youth team manager, Ted Moody said: “Matt’s a brave man. But seriously, we are very grateful for his help."
