Stuart Pearce to race Wire Flyer

Former international footballer Stuart Pearce is set to race the Wire Flyer.

Warrington’s mystery mascot in green has raced everybody from fans and former chairmen as part of the Wolves’ half-time entertainment.

And Rugby League supporter Pearce, who is a former England international, will take to the field against the Flyer tomorrow night, when Warrington face Wakefield.

Pearce will answer a series of trivia questions to attempt to build a head start.

Earlier this season, the Wire Flyer raced and beat former Salford owner Marwan Koukash.
