The Premier League season restarts next Wednesday, with the first match back being Aston Villa against Sheffield United.

For one Blade fan in particular, that means the challenges of being a football fan resume in a number of ways.

At the start of the season 51-year-old James Kemp promised to cycle to every away match to raise money for Sheffield Children's Hospital. The ambitious pledge has so far raised over £7,000.

With lockdown his challenge ground to a halt, and although he will not be able to stay for the match as they are being played behind closed doors, he cannot wait to get back to get back in the saddle on Wednesday.
