Teams needed Char­lie’s goals...

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

SOME top play­ers de­mand the red car­pet treat­ment wher­ever they go, but Queens Park Rangers’ £15m-rated striker Char­lie Austin made a visit to watch two of his for­mer Non-League teams do bat­tle this week – and in­sisted on pay­ing for the priv­i­lege, writes Alex Southey.

The 26-year-old paid £10 ad­mis­sion to watch Hunger­ford v Poole in the Evo-Stik South­ern League Premier – and joked about want­ing his money back with Poole man­ager Tom Killick af­ter fail­ing to see any goals.

Killick saw the funny side and said: “I wouldn’t have charged him if he had come to a home game. It was re­ally good to catch up with him –he likes to come and sup­port us when he’s not play­ing.”
