Walcott comes to town to support dad

'Let's see if I get my skills from you' said footballer Theo Walcott who surprised spectators when he turned up to watch his dad play in a charity football match on Sunday.

The Arsenal winger's loyalties were tested when his dad, Don, took on a team of ex-Arsenal pros and celebrities at Ashlyns School, in Berkhamsted.

Despite their best efforts the home team- BerkoAstro United- were trounced 10-4 by the likes of Spandau Ballet's Tony Hadley, actor Ralf Little and a string of former Arsenal players.

But the loss could not put a dampener on the day which is thought to have raised 10,000.
