AFC Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn completed the Bupa Great South Run as a tribute to former Manchester City and Norwich City manager John Bond.

Mostyn raised over £1,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, this season’s Official Charity Partner of The Football League as he completed the ten-mile run in Portsmouth on Sunday 27 October. He now enters the Men United Hall of Fame.

The recently appointed Cherries chairman ran alongside his wife Rose in a time of one hour and 57 minutes.

Bond, who led the club to their first ever promotion in 1971, passed away in September last year at the age of 79.

"John was a close friend and a real football man, so it was a privilege to run in his memory", Mostyn said.

"It was fantastic to be able to raise money for such an important charity and one that is so close to John’s family’s and my heart.

"I would like to thank everyone who sent donations and messages over the last few weeks and months because I really appreciate their support."

"As Chairman of AFC Bournemouth, I was so proud to run on behalf of the Football Leagues chosen charity and raise so much money. It was my first ever run and I am still feeling it!"

There’s still time to donate and to do so please visit Jeff's Justgiving page.
