Maldon: Footballing hero to open Mud Race

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Maldon: Footballing hero to open Mud Race Maldon: Footballing hero to open Mud Race

This year’s hugely popular Maldon Mud Race will be opened by a England footballing legend.
 

Martin Peters made his mark in the finest moment of this country’s footballing history when he scored the second goal in the 1966 World Cup Final against West Germany.
 

Peters, who was only 23 at the time, was dubbed “the ghost” by fans for his ability to drift into goal-scoring positions unnoticed.
 

He will be opening the Mud Race on May 5 and is unlikely to be the only famous face there, given the race’s ability to attract celebrity participants.

Will the *celebrity* gay dads be taking part?

It would be an ideal opportunity for them to do some good for local charities instead of filling the local media with inane articles fuelled by their desire for self interest and publicity.

Go on lads, dare you!
