JEFF Stelling is almost halfway through his latest epic adventure for Prostate Cancer.

The Sky Sports presenter and Hartlepool United vice-president spent Thursday in Scotland, walking a marathon from Glasgow to Motherwell and is currently in Belfast.

An evening flight takes him to Cardiff to do the same in South Wales, before Sunday takes in the same distance in London.

“Getting there I suppose you could say – we are a bit knackered, 16/17 miles into day two and we are getting there,’’ he said this afternoon en route to Windsor Park, joined today by Iain Dowie, Colin Murray and Colin Frampton as well as a pack of walkers, with their own story behind their inspiration to join in.

“Day one in Scotland, back at it was tough as well at times. The weather was kind and we had a great bunch of walkers and people with us – even Charlie Nicholas when he turned up…

“His flight was delayed from London so missed the start. While we were setting off at 7 o’clock at Hampden Park, he was sat drinking champagne in the VIP lounge. They don’t call him Champagne Charlie for nothing you know!’’

And there was a familiar face for Hartlepool’s finest son when he arrived at Fir Park: “We got to Motherwell and Peter Hartley was there to greet us, a real Hartlepool hero so it was good to see him and Liam Donnelly hasn’t done badly there too since he signed.’’

Stelling is constantly humbled by the support from the public on his walks. This is his third ramble for Prostate Cancer.

“What’s good is taking the walk and the message to different areas – we get a fantastic response,’’ he said.

“We’ve just been walking down the road and three builders go past us… they stopped and I heard them say ‘there’s Jeff Stelling’ and they don’t expect it.

“It’s about getting the message out there and we have walked in England, so to take it to Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales is really important.

“It’s working really well in that sense.

“We went past Harland and Wolff shipyard – the guys there have been on strike for five weeks, they don’t have an owner so, to be honest, their prospects aren’t great. They had a whip round and put in £250 – wow, that’s fantastic. They also put up a table of drinks and oranges and snacks.’’

And now tomorrow evening, on the last leg of his journey, Stelling will be able to watch Pools take on Woking which is being televised live on BT Sport.

After three wins in a row, Stelling hopes Sunday’s walk will be lifted by a fourth victory for Craig Hignett’s side.

One of his stopping points in Scotland saw him get an insight to that victory, as the Hamilton head coach had watched Pools win at Holker Street: “Brian Rice was at Barrow – I spoke to him at Hamilton yesterday and he said we got away with it because our keeper was phenomenal. And Ben (Killip) has settled down now, Brian said we handled the conditions well when it was tricky.

“We can invite teams on and play on the break and listening to the commentary the other night we could have got three or four playing like that.

“Hopefully I’ll be able to watch the game on the train going across to London tomorrow evening – signal permitting.

“We made the flight to Belfast fine, we got on track early and it’s all going to plan so far….’’
