Kevin Webber arrived at The Brewery Field today as part of his walk to raise awareness for the National League’s chosen charity, Prostate Cancer UK.
Webber, who is currently three days into the walk which will see him visit 10 National League clubs, was greeted by supporters, staff, directors and the Mayor of Spennymoor.
Midfielder Rob Ramshaw was also in attendance to hand over a Moors hat and scarf, as well as a home jersey.
After arriving at The Brewery Field, Webber said: “It’s been a great experience so far and I hope that the club can get something back from it as well.
“I left Hartlepool at 8am this morning and it’s 18 miles from their ground to here, so I’ve been doing about 4mph all the way and literally haven’t stopped until now.
“I’ve been on more professional football pitches in the last few days than I have been in my entire life I think!
“Your average home gate is around 950, and the shocking reality is that about 110 of your fans will get Prostate Cancer and 20 of them will die from the disease, and that is pretty alarming.
“The Mayor of Spennymoor, Clive Maddison, presented Webber with a plaque on behalf of the people of the town and said: “We really appreciate what you have done as the disease if the main killer for men.
“It’s great that you are going around the grounds and raising awareness, and it’s nice to see you with a Spennymoor top on!”
Webber continues his journey in Darlington, before travelling to York City, Harrogate Town, Guiseley, Bradford Park Avenue and Halifax Town.
