Northern Ireland manager and former Dundee United player Michael O’Neill hopes people will show their support for an amputee player’s charity endeavours in Dundee this weekend.
Robert Wilson will walk from the Tay Road Bridge to Dundee Law then back towards the Waterfront today.
He hopes the trek will raise £500 for the Amputee Football Association Scotland (AFAS) via a My Donate page. Mr O’Neill, a patron of AFAS, said: “I went along to see a couple of training sessions. I was quite taken aback by the level of skill and work.
“It is an immense effort and commitment by the players.”
Robert will be joined by fellow amputee footballers Leigh Gregory, Becca Sellar, Iain Matthew, Mick Lennon and charity founder Ashley Reid on the six-mile round trip.
Mr O’Neill said: “To do that as an able-bodied person is difficult enough so I take my hat off to them.
“It would be great for people to get behind them. “
