Martin Tyler and Gary Neville go head to head in non-league clash

Sky Sports pundits Martin Tyler and Gary Neville will pit their non league outfits against each other this Saturday at The Beveree in south west London.

Hampton and Richmond Borough entertain Salford City in the Jacob Sylvester Trophy, with some of the proceeds from the game going to Bliss, the charity for premature and sick babies.

It is the second time the Beavers are hosting at The Beveree, with Tyler (who is also a first team coach at HRBFC) and Neville (one of the owners of SCFC) both heavily involved in their respective non league clubs.

The day will also include fun for all the family, including a raffle, bake sale, bouncy castle and much more.

Both teams have already made plenty of announcements and changes over the summer, which have sparked excitement for next season.

Following promotion in 2015/16, Hampton & Richmond reached the National League South playoffs in April, awarding manager Alan Dowson a full-time contract. With new directors in place, the club are looking to build on the success of last year, and start their season with some silverware.

As for Salford City, having already made 11 signings this summer, they too will be looking to begin their campaign showcasing new talent. The newly promoted Ammies reached the playoffs of the National League North, however narrowly missed out on a place in the Conference, after their penalty shootout defeat to Halifax Town.
