An­gel is the big Papa of the piz­zas

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

BLACK­POOL stars An­gel Martinez, Bob Har­ris and Mark Hal­stead got a pizza the ac­tion this week – and the Span­ish mid­fielder topped the lot.

The Sea siders trio were guest chefs at the town’s Papa Johns take­away and Spa­niard Martinez, a cult fig­ure on the Bloom­field Road ter­races, proved he’s not just a mae­stro in their mid­field.

The 27-year-old was ad­judged the win­ner ahead of re­serve goal­keeper Hal­stead and left-back Har­ris.

Martinez said: “Some­times I’ve made pizza at home but I didn’t know how to make the take­away style. It was great fun to see how they do it here and then to eat it as well.”

Hal­stead, a keen cook at home, ad­mit­ted it had moved him away from his com­fort zone.

“I do like to cook most nights and think I’m a bit of a dab hand in the kitchen but not with pizza – a car­bonara is my spe­cial­ity.

“It’s cer­tainly harder than it looks.You don’t re­alise it when you are open­ing the box at home! I don’t think I will be get­ting a full-time job here.”
