Brentford head coach Dean Smith and chief executive Mark Devlin will be joining Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling on the final leg of his marathon walk from the North East to Wembley Stadium to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

Stelling will be visiting more than 30 football clubs in ten days as he walks from his beloved Hartlepool United to Wembley in late March.

His final day on Wednesday March 30 will start at AFC Wimbledon’s Cherry Red Records Stadium where he will make his way from south west London to north west London for the final 26 miles with Smith and Devlin joining him at Griffin Park to walk the rest of the way.

Smith said: “I am happy to be joining Jeff for the final day of his gruelling walk from Hartlepool to Wembley.

"It is for a charity very close to me, with my good friend Errol McKellar being an ambassador for Men United.

“I am full of admiration for Jeff in taking on this challenge and the small part I can play in helping raise awareness and funds for this charity is a privilege.

"The challenge has certainly caught the attention of the football family and I am sure along with myself they will be there, fully supportive in giving what they can.”

Brentford chief executive Mark Devlin also paid tribute to Jeff, and Hartlepool counterpart Russ Green, for taking on the task.

He added: “What a fantastic and gruelling challenge Jeff and Russ have in front of them. It will be a privilege to be able to join them on the final leg of their inspirational walk from Hartlepool to Wembley Stadium.

"I’m sure that everyone from both inside and outside of the football community will offer as much help as they are able in raising both awareness and funds for the ongoing battle against Prostate Cancer.

"I just hope I can keep up with the pair of them and look forward to walking up Wembley Way with Jeff, Russ and everyone else involved in this wonderful walk.”

Brentford fans can apply to join Dean and Mark in supporting Jeff from West London to Wembley, or follow them along a shorter section of the route.

Travelling the whole way on 30 March means departing from Kingston upon Thames, along the river to Brentford and Fulham, then heading past Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers on the way to Wembley.

There is also the option to apply for a shorter walk of six miles from Griffin Park to Craven Cottage.

Supporters can also help raise funds to help fight the disease and raise awareness of the walk itself, with information that can be found at .
