Jeff’s lin­ger­ing Hart-ache...

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

SKY pre­sen­ter Jeff Stelling has re­vealed the on-screen tor­ment he goes through thanks to his beloved Hartle­pool’s form – and a mis­chievous Soc­cer Satur­day col­league.

Stelling put his team’s trou­bles in the Foot­ball League’s base­ment to one side this week to give his sup­port to Prostate Can­cer UK’s new Men United drive.

And he re­vealed: “A few weeks ago the bot­tom of League Two stayed on screen for quite some time. It was an ab­so­lute dis­grace and I shall name our direc­tor Karen Wilm­ing­ton who re­fused to take it off.

“Karen rules the place and she re­fused to let our graph­ics peo­ple move on to the next ta­ble. It was 20 or 30 sec­onds but felt about 20 or 30 min­utes!”

Stelling, right, vis­ited the ‘Men United Arms’ in South Lon­don, the first of many pubs the Foot­ball League’s part­ner char­ity will take over this year. In an in­ter­view to sup­port the char­ity, Stelling dis­cusses the ban­ter be­hind the scenes with Phil Thomp­son, Char­lie Ni­cholas and Paul Mer­son.

“It’s part of the fun,” he adds. “Foot­ball is en­ter­tain­ment af­ter all.”
