A FOOTBALL icon and TV personality is ready to meet the “good sports” of Penarth.

Chris Kamara, football legend and TV personality, is joining forces with a Penarth pub to find and reward local “good sports” – those unsung heroes who give up their weekends to watch sports whatever the weather.

To help give back to supporters for their attendance and unwavering support, the Oystercatcher Hungry Horse pub on Terra Nova Way, Penarth is calling for locals to nominate those who deserve a special reward.

The chosen “good sport” will win £500 and the chance to meet former footballer Chris Kamara. Chris will join them in cheering on their local sports team from the sideline.

Andrew Jones, the general manager at the Oystercatcher said: “We see plenty of “good sports” in Penarth joining the team for a pint or two at the pub after the game, having selflessly given up their weekend to cheer on their friends and family, come rain or shine.

“That’s why we’re giving back to local community heroes in Penarth and giving them some well-earned recognition for all their ongoing dedication and support.”

Mr Kamara added: “While it’s the players on the pitch that usually get all the glory, we thought it was high time for the fantastic fans on the sidelines to get some well-deserved recognition.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have all of the fans behind you during a nail-biting game, and I can’t wait to meet the “good sport” in the community.”

Nominations are open now until Wednesday, April 17.

Entrants must say why their “good sport” deserves the title. The winner will receive £500, a meal on the house at their local Hungry Horse, and the chance to meet Mr Kamara. To nominate a good sport, visit hungryhorse.co.uk/good-sport
