Trust | Watford Team Take On Nightrider

This weekend a team of ten Trust supporters are taking on the London Nightrider Challenge 2017, in aid of the Hornets' Community Sports and Education Trust. 

The night-time charity bike ride will see cyclists ride past sights of England’s capital city such as Big Ben and St Paul's Cathedral, as they raise money for Watford FC’s self-financing registered charity. 

Get to know our riders below, and donate by following the links! 

David Frost

Having completed the Nightrider challenge before, Hornets fan David decided this year he wanted to raise money for the Trust as it ‘embraces Graham Taylor’s vision and principles’. Cycling alongside a lifelong Chelsea fan, David is determined to beat him.

Liam McGarry

Media man Liam has been putting in the hours in training as he takes on the challenge for a charity that does ‘incredible amounts of work in the local community’.

Steve Scott

Admitting that he’d ‘never done anything like this before’, Steve is looking forward to putting himself to the test. Steve chose the Trust after being impressed by the refurbishment of a rundown community centre in Meriden.

Jonathan North

The gloves are off as Wealdstone FC goalkeeper Northy swaps The Stones' kit for cycling shorts. Having represented his country he is now looking to conquer the London Nightrider challenge.

Lady Hornets – Carol Robinson, Maxine Robinson and Cherry Schomberg

Tackling the challenge head on, these ladies are keen cyclists and are ready to take on Nightrider as a team. Always positive, the Lady Hornets can’t wait to get started!

The Berko Bikers - Kate Campbell, Claire Prunty, Angela Proctor

From the rolling hills of Surrey to the mighty mountains of Majorca, these ladies are seasoned cyclists who are always looking for their next challenge…bring on the Night!

The Trust would like to wish the team the best of luck and thank all those that are supporting. You can find out more about them at
