Trio of Marathon runners to bring out matchball

NORWICH City legend Adam Drury and the Community Sports Foundation (CSF) marathon team are the Community Heroes for Saturday's game against Fulham at Carrow Road (12:15pm).

The former defender, along with Chloe Pellican and Matt Watson, completed the Virgin Money London Marathon last weekend, and with the help of City fans have currently raised over £10,000 for CSF.

Members of the CSF coaching and administrative team will join them on the pitch to mark their achievement with a guard of honour.

Drury made over 300 appearances for the Canaries, before becoming an ambassador for CFS in November last year.

He received support from several current and ex-City players, crossing the finish line in an impressive time of 3:42:53.

Matt, 27, is part of the CSF health programme that helps children and their families to understand the importance of nutrition and exercise when maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

As was the case with both Adam and Chloe, 2015 marked Matt's first marathon as he finished in a time of 5:07:48.

Meanwhile, 23-year-old Chloe was a member of the Club’s Legal and Football Services until recently, and had to overcome a severe bout of fatigue after 22 miles of the race.

After receiving treatment from marathon medical staff, she was able to continue, completing the course in 5:01:55.

Phillip Minns, a Canary fan from London who cannot be at Saturday’s game, was the fourth member of the team, and the Foundation are extremely grateful to be one of his chosen charities.

The money that the team have raised will be used to help disadvantaged and disabled people in Norfolk enjoy the benefits of sport through the work of CSF.

Adam Drury’s fundraising page is still live HERE, with donations are gratefully received.
