Fundraising footballers in fancy dress fun run

A GROUP of young footballers will be running through Morpeth town centre this weekend to raise money for their club.

Morpeth SC Madrid Under-15s are hosting a fancy dress fun run on Saturday, starting in the car park of Northumberland County Council’s County Hall HQ.

From there the youngsters will take in a three-mile run through the town ending in Lancaster Park.

Shoppers and visitors in the town centre will be encouraged to cheer the lads on as they run up through the main streets of Bridge Street and Newgate Street, past the clock tower, in their various outfits.
