So we managed to visit several clubs overnight in between a few stops for some well needed sleep and within a few hours we had reversed the time deficit and were suddenly way ahead of where we planned to be!
Brentford and Fulham went off without a hitch and following a stop for a sleep in the car we were on to Chelsea and QPR.
As we were ahead a schedule we took the opportunity to have another kip in the motor before waking at 3am to begin the final part of our journey. It’s fair to say we were all absolutely shattered by this point but the knowledge that we were on target to complete the challenge within the allotted 92 hours had us in a great mood from the off!
This section of the challenge also saw us visit the grounds of four of the 92 in 92 challenge lads teams; Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham. So we we’re in a suitable jovial mood!
With the roads quiet all these visits went off without a hitch, all except Leyton Orient of course! My brother Dave had agreed to meet us at the ground at the ridiculously early time if 4:30am, however he got slightly lost on his way to the stadium! Matt and I worked out where he was and jumped in the car to drive round and collect him. Having found him with ease, we somehow managed to misplace the stadium and our 92 in 92 challenge colleagues!!! 15 minutes later and finally worked it out and were able to get our photo! Huge thanks to Dave for meeting us and for the much needed supplies!! Was great to see you and looking forward to having a beer with you later! (Club Woodham from midday!)
A quick stop at Dagenham & Redbridge and we had successfully managed to visit 91 of the 92 clubs in under 87 hours!! It’s been a crazy few days and the reality of it probably won’t sink in for us for a while. Thank you again for your support!!
So now, on to Colchester United!! The 92 ground of the 92 clubs….. let’s hope we make it before 11am!!!
