SATURDAY marked the half way stage for funds raised and played games after a Frodsham football fanatic embarked on his own FA Cup run.
Richard Knowles, 35, of Godscroft Lane, Frodsham, has so far raised £2,476.77 for Cancer Research UK after eight games and last weekend enjoyed the first round proper as Nuneaton lost to Exeter .
He said: “Runcorn2wembley started on August 15 at Runcorn Linnets and we will now travel to Milton Keynes in three weeks to watch the Dons take on Exeter City.”
Joined again by his brother Robert, of Southport and friends Jonathan Lewin and Chris Horner, they raised their highest total from one game yet with £460.76.
“I can’t thank all the football clubs, fans and helpers enough for the superb support this campaign has received.
“Like many people cancer has had a direct impact on our lives, as our father died when my brother and I were very young.
“He was a great footballer and this seems an appropriate way to raise money, particularly as he used to play for Runcorn in the 1960s.”
Richard will continue to follow the winning team in each round until the final at Wembley in May, paying all his own expenses.
