A Tottenham Hotspur fan is putting aside club loyalty and donning football shirts from opposition teams to raise funds for Westbury Youth FC U15s.

Zak Haimes and his friend Jack Gilroy, both 15, are running 109 miles - a distance equivalent from Westbury to Wembley Stadium.

The pair started running on June 1 aiming to complete the course this month by running several miles per day.

Zak’s inspiration for the run came from his friend recently running the equivalent of the distance from Trowbridge to Twickenham.

Zak, of Carders Corner, Trowbridge, said: “It has been quite difficult but I know that the money is going to the club so that keeps me going."

The keen Spurs fan was promised donations - but only if he were to wear football shirts from other clubs.

Zak added: “Although this pained me and my dad Trevor, a Spurs fan of 40 years, I completed four miles on my first run in an Arsenal FC shirt."

For his sixth run Zak donned a Liverpool FC shirt, and then a Bristol City FC shirt for the seventh run.

He said: “So long as money is being donated for the cause, I’d wear most shirts for a bit of fun and the donation.”

When Jack, who lives in Sandalwood Road, Westbury, got to hear of what Zak was doing he asked if he could join in and offer his support.

So far, they have run more than 46 miles, having had a rest due to some sore muscles.

The teenagers, who both play for Westbury Youth U15s, are alternating their runs between Trowbridge and Westbury where each of them live.

Trevor Haimes said: "I'm very proud of Zak. It was very painful to see him wearing other football shirts but it's all for a good cause."

A JustGiving page was set up, initially hoping to raise £200, but has already raised £300.

Other donations have been received and will be added at the end. So far, the total raised is more than £475.
