Workington Reds will welcome fundraising hero Gary McKee to Borough Park as a special guest at their centenary game later this month.

The NPL West high-fliers have invited west Cumbrian marathon man McKee to attend the game against Trafford on March 19.

And the club are hoping for a bumper attendance – which will also boost McKee’s incredible bid to raise money for charity by running a marathon every day of this year.

“If we reach another 1,000 crowd, 50p per person will be donated to Gary’s amazing campaign,” the club said.

“Let’s pack Borough Park for Gary.”

Reds added that it will be an “honour” to welcome Cleator Moor’s McKee to the game.

He has already raised more than £50,000 this year for Macmillan Cancer Support and Hospice at Home West Cumbria.

His current challenge follows the remarkable feat of running marathons on 110 consecutive days last year.

Workington Reds, meanwhile, have also announced a ticket discount for the Trafford game for those who work in the NHS, emergency services, social care sector and armed forces.

Presenting a Blue Light Card at the turnstiles will allow entry for just £5.

The Trafford game comes the day after Workington hold their centenary dinner in the town.

The event at the Washington Central Hotel will see former Reds stars in attendance and memories shared of the club’s rich history.

The celebrations come at a time Chris Willcock’s team are pushing for promotion. They currently sit second in the table behind Warrington Rylands with three games in hand.

Reds face a trip to third-placed Leek Town on Saturday.
