SHEFFIELD Wednesday legend David Hirst has arrived back in South Yorkshire with his team of cycling fundraisers after a 180-mile ride from London.

The former striker, part of a group from the Wednesdayite supporters’ club, set off after the Owls’ vital victory against Brentford on Saturday.

They arrived back at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, which they are raising money for.

The team was welcomed back by Owls fan Richard Morris, aged 20, from Worksop, who has severe brain damage and is a regular user of the hospice.

His dad John said: “It’s fantastic what David and the Wednesdayites have done, especially with the bad weather.

Hirst said: “The ride has been a great experience, and I’m honoured to have been part of this team of cyclists who have raised so much for Bluebell Wood.

“The hospice provides incredible support to children with a shortened life expectancy in this region and their families.”
