Former Arsenal and Scotland goalkeeper, TV presenter and University of Derby honorand Bob Wilson is embarking on the greatest challenge of his life this April.

In aid of the national charity, the Willow Foundation, he is helping to improve the lives of seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds throughout the UK. As part of the challenge, Bob will cycle more than 500 miles via every Premier League Club in England and Hampden Park in his homeland of Scotland.

The challenge began today with Bob starting at Fulham FC and Chelsea FC in London and will finish on 29 April at Hampden Park in Scotland.

Bob, who is originally from Chesterfield, is an Arsenal legend who was also capped by Scotland and went on to front sports shows on both ITV and the BBC. He has also been a goalkeeping coach and an author and in 2001 was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Derby.
