Martin Does The Hard Miles To Give Hampton Kids Helping Hand

He’s more used to spending his Sunday afternoons keeping the nation informed and entertained during Super Sunday.

But Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler instead spend today in the snow doing laps around the Hampton & RB pitch for three hours!

The 72-year-old broadcasting great got his boots on to raise much needed money for the club’s youth team.

Up early, he did the 50 circuits as promised - and hopefully the money keeps rolling in.

The Beavers, who drew the vital National League South clash at Havant 0-0 on Saturday, are fundraising for the Run For The Youth campaign and are nearing their £2,000 target.

Manager Alan Dowson went to the great effort of running with coach Tyler for the first few laps with equally unfit sidekick Ian Dyer.

He said: “It was an incredible effort for a fantastic cause.

“Martin holds the club close to his heart and he knows how important the youth team are and how we need to raise as much money as we possibly can.”

You can donate by visiting the club’s website or twitter page where a link to a fundraising page can be found.

Hampton hope the snow gets off the Beveree pitch as soon as possible.

The hope to close the gap on the Hawks by beating Hungerford Town on Tuesday night.
