SAINTS stars Jon Wilkin, Paul Wellens and Jonny Lomax are used to making their mark with an oval ball.

But the tables were turned in the one-off Typhoo celebrity football match at Langtree Park on Sunday afternoon.

Wilkin and Wellens lined up for the Ginetta All Stars alongside ex Saints legend Sean Long, as well as the likes of Coronation Street actors Chris Fountain and Sam Aston.

The opposing team, the Typhoo Legends, were skippered by former Liverpool FC defender Mark Wright.

The match was just the latest in a series of events planned to mark Wilkin’s testimonial year - with the proceeds being donated to various good causes, including the Steve Prescott Foundation.
