DIDCOT Town’s appeal for assistance to make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic has been answered by one of their youngest fans.

Lincoln Callaghan only turned five in January, but has now set himself a challenge of riding 100 kilometres on his bike to raise money.

The Railwaymen are nearing the halfway mark in their attempt to reach £10,000, having feared for the future when the season ended abuptly last month.

Lincoln though can already add more than £700 to the pot, with the aim of reaching £2,500.

His father Chris said: “To keep Lincoln occupied we went out on his bike and did 20 kilometres.

“I wondered if we could use his bike rides to try to raise some money for his beloved Didcot Town.

“The next morning we had a chat and he said it was a good idea and wanted to do it.”

The youngster has already knocked off a quarter of the total distance.

And the family are happy to help, despite only moving to the area last year.

Chris said: “When we were walking around the area we found the club.

“We started going and fell in love with the place.

“I’m a Doncaster Rovers fan, but we were season ticket holders at Didcot this year.

“Lincoln’s been a mascot and is quite well known there because he rides his bike around during the games.

“I think it’s a special club.”
