Fancy a stroll?

Scott walks the 92 for charity

Last August Scott Mclachlan set off for a bit of a stroll and this morning, some seven months and 2,300 miles later, the intrepid former IT worker arrived at The Den on the final leg of his epic Walkthe92.
Scott set off from Portsmouth on Sunday 19th August with the specific aim of walking to all 92 Premier League and Football League clubs in one very long walk to raise at least £9,200 for Prostate Cancer UK.
His arrival at The Den was the 87th club Scott had visited, finishing up at Brighton & HA on Saturday 13th April via Gillingham, Crawley, Crystal Palace and Charlton.
Pompey fan Scott, who stayed for around an hour at The Den taking photos and having a reviving cup of tea and some sandwiches, said: "I am thrilled to support The Football League’s Official Charity Partner, Prostate Cancer UK, by undertaking this challenge.
Along the way I’ve had the support of my family and friends and have experienced overwhelming support from football fans across the country. 
With the disease predicted to be the most common cancer in the UK by 2030, it's important that we raise awareness of the issues and raise essential funds for prostate cancer research."
Lions chief executive Andy Ambler signed the Walkthe92 flag Scott has taken with him to each club he has visited thus far, and added: "It is a truly remarkable challenge Scott has undertaken and we were only too pleased to welcome him here at Millwall FC.
We hope that not only Scott raises awareness of prostate cancer, but also some money too for the charity."
