Sellars targets perfect Blue Day against Crewe

5 December 2017

Jerell Sellars is targeting a perfect day when Cheltenham Town face Crewe in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

The Robins have decided to wear a one-off blue strip for the match at the LCI Rail Stadium to raise awareness of the British Lung Foundation (BLF), the only UK charity looking after the nation’s lungs. 

The idea is the brainchild of the Robins Trust, who have worked closely with the club in creating an event to also put on a show of togetherness with the club's fitness coach Ian Hutton and his fiancee Vicky Veness. Vicky was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer earlier this year.

Sellars acknowledges it will be a special day for the club as they look to raise awareness and vital funds for the BLF.

And the 21-year-old also revealed how much he would love to finally grab his first goal for the Robins.

"I can't wait for the Crewe game,” said Sellars, speaking at the Club Shop, where fans can buy the blue kit from Friday.

“Blue is actually my favourite colour so I'm looking forward to getting the new-look jersey on for one game.

"It's a special day for the club with all that is going on for the British Lung Foundation. It would be the perfect day to get my first goal for Cheltenham and three massive points.

"The fans have been great," added Sellars. "I feel like they really support me and that always helps, knowing you have got that backing behind you. I know they are willing me to score that first goal.”
