IT promises to be one of the longest road trips to see a home game ever.

So if you see this lot on the road give them a wave and wish them well.

Step forward David Cryer, Tony Cronshaw, Brett Miller and Wayne Jackson who will set off from Hillsborough in the early hours of the morning to drive 1200 miles to see Wednesday’s game versus Bolton Wanders - back at Hillsborough tomorrow.

And by the time they arrive at the stadium, the lads will have driven the car, provided by Penistone Road Peugeot dealer Robins and Day, to every single Championship Ground.

Tony from Charnock, Brett, who is landlord of the Birley Hotel and Wayne, from Frecheville, will take turns driving the car with their mate David, whose son Matthew was killed on the Greek Island of Zante.

An inquest heard the teenager, who grew up Birley and Killamarsh, died after being kicked and punched by bouncers who then pushed him down a 20ft flight of steps.

Ever since that dreadful day the Justice for Matt campaigners have called for those responsible for the 17-year-old’s death to be brought before the Greek Courts.

Their camapign, backed by The Star, has seen them undertake a number of protests and demonstrations.

And the mammoth drive is the latest.

Delivery man David, from Birley, said: “We’re hoping that football fans around the country will support us. We will continue with our campaign those responsible for Matthew’s death are brought to justice.”
