Marathon effort by Coleraine players!

1 Mins read
Coleraine FC

If you thought the Coleraine players put in a marathon effort to beat NK Maribor last week you’d be right!

The players ran the equivalent of almost FOUR marathons during the tie in Slovenia.

Statistics recorded by the club showed that they covered a staggering 96.2 miles during the 120 minutes.

That’s just eight miles short of four full marathons.

When people talk about covering every blade of grass, on this occasion they meant it!
