Glasgow City players Emma Fernon, Lauren McMurchie and Christie Murray, along with head coach Eddie Wolecki Black, have completed the last leg of Sir Ian Botham’s Beefy’s Great British Walk in Glasgow.

The Scottish champions joined City sponsor Douglas McCrea, of McCrea Financial Services, whose company is the official Glasgow partner of the walk, in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

In doing so, they helped Sir Ian Botham raise vast sums of money for this wonderful cause, which now helps nine in ten children with the most common form of leukaemia beat the disease.

After starting in Glasgow on Thursday, Sir Ian will walk through a further nine UK cities.

The local walk featured a number of well-known faces, as Celtic manager Neil Lennon also put on his walking boots for the event.
