TWO Premier League referees are swapping their boots for bicycles as they tackle a nine-day fundraising challenge.
Jon Moss and Martin Atkinson set off from Leeds yesterday (July 19) on the 1,000-mile Whistle Stop Tour, visiting every Premier League club.
Jon said: “This is a major challenge. We really will be seeing the Premier League clubs from a different perspective and look forward to meeting fans along the way.
“Our chosen charities are relatively small but we have seen their work first hand and what a tremendous job they do.”
The event aims to raise £50,000 for the Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation and Jane Tomlinson Appeal.
The pair will tackle the event with colleagues from Premier Game Match Officials.
