Players swap football boots for hiking boots in Three Peaks challenge

A group of four professional footballers have told the BBC about their plans to take on the national Three Peaks Challenge.

Speaking to Radio Shropshire, Nicky Wroe, Kevin McIntyre, Shane Cansdell-Sherriff and Dave Raven explained why they are climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon this summer.

The foursome are seeking to raise cash for the Hope House Children's Hospital and Wroe said: "It'll be tough but it's good for team morale, and I jumped at the chance."

He added they will be taking plenty of plasters for the expedition in late May and the players may also want to get some rucksacks to help carry their accessories.

The challenge is a highly popular one in summer, when the long days make it easier to climb all three in 24 hours.

If they fancy some local training, the highest point in Shropshire the players can climb is Brown Clee Hill at 1,772 ft.
