Marathon effort from Didz's former team-mate

Francis Benali checked in at Portman Road yesterday on the latest stop on his challenge to visit the 44 stadiums of the clubs in the top two divisions to raise money for charity. 

The former Southampton defender has been running a marathon [26 miles] and then cycling another 80 odd miles a day, every day since starting the ‘Benali Big Race’ at Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium on October 2.

Benali, a former team-mate of Town striker David McGoldrick at Southampton, is due to finish at Saints' St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday after raising a significant sum of money for Cancer Research UK.
