Big Dunc Zips Across Goodison
Blues legend helps raise funds for EITC with zip slide challenge.
Everton legend Duncan Ferguson joined hundreds of fans at Goodison Park on Saturday for the Blues’ annual Zip Slide Challenge.
Supporters gathered to watch the former Blues striker and their fellow adrenaline junkies fly from the top balcony, across the pitch and into the Bullens Road stand on the specially assembled zip line.
The event was held to raise money for Everton in the Community and organisers hope it will raise tens of thousands of pounds for the Blues’ official charity.
After zipping across the pitch, Duncan met with fans who had queued for over an hour to meet their Everton hero.
Speaking at the event Ferguson said: “I was absolutely petrified standing on the Top Balcony – I am not keen on heights so I just wanted to get it over and done with as quickly as possible!
“It was fantastic to see so many fans turn out to support the charity and I hope Everton in the Community has been able to raise a significant amount from today.”
