Two big-hearted football fans will go the distance to raise money for cancer research.

Brothers Josh, 19, and Alfie Pavett, 13, will take part in the final leg of the Big Football Tag Walk on Sunday in aid of the Bobby Moore Fund.

The cash will fund research into bowel cancer, which killed the football legend 20 years ago.

Josh, of Bridgewater Road, Harold Hill, will walk from Tottenham Hotspur FC to Arsenal FC – while Alfie will walk from Leyton Orient FC to West Ham FC.

Ninety-two teams will be represented on the walk – every team from the Premier and English Football League – by means of a signed armband.

All 92 will be presented at the gates of the West Ham United stadium to Jonjo Heuerman, the 11-year-old who founded the annual walk in memory of his nan Lyn and his hero Bobby Moore. Jonjo will then trek 66 miles across London over six days to complete the journey.
