When it came to discuss what to do to celebrate Round Table Day on 14 March this year, Richard Holland wanted to do something special, that had to include all of the Round Table Family. At the age of two, his daughter had needed an urgent operation and Birmingham Children’s Hospital was chosen as the beneficiary of any money raised, to say thank you for the care she was given. It was the 92nd year of Round Table, there are 92 clubs in the Premier and English Football League, so it was decided to visit all 92 clubs in 92 hours. The World Record for completing this was 74 hours 20 minutes, so it was turned into a World Record attempt.
After being shown around the Ricoh Arena by ex-Coventry City legend David Busst, the team started at 9 minutes to 2, on Monday 11 March with the view of finishing this punishing trip on Thursday 14 March, Round Table Day. Griffin Park was ticked off on the second day of the trip and the team reached Villa Park, the final stop early on 14 March. The team took an astonishing 9 hours 41 minutes off the time and took the last photo at Villa Park 64 hours and 39 minutes after starting at Coventry on the Monday, having covered 2,407 miles.
