Gôl! & Merthyr Town FC Minithon
Gôl! will be teaming up with Merthyr Town FC on Sunday 24th October, when a minithon will be hosted to raise funds for Gôl! and Merthyr Town.
It will be a fun run/walk/crawl from Rhydycar Leisure Centre to Abercanaid (& return), approximately 4km. To register your interest in taking part please email
Merthyr Town Manager Garry Shephard is fully supportive of the minithon, saying "The players are looking forward to the minithon, and there is a book being run on who will be the slowest in our squad. I am having a special strapping made following an injury to ensure that I can compete, and will return to training to prepare for the event shortly. It seems odd to hear Merthyr mentioned in the same breath as Sydney, Boston USA, Turin and Manchester but we look forward to competing against them all as the 'underdogs'.
I am delighted though that the Club is supporting Gôl which has an excellent record at helping underprivileged children at home and abroad. As a father myself I realise it is important that we provide help to children to improve their quality of life. Since the Club has reformed we are keen to support community events such as these, and I am delighted that the whole squad will be taking part."
