Unbelievable! Chris Kamara back on the ball for Welshpool

There will be 'unbelievable' scenes in Welshpool next week when Sky Sports pundit Chris Kamara comes out of retirement again to help the town's struggling side.

The former footballer, famous for his catchphrase 'Unbelievable Jeff' on Sky Soccer Saturday, played for Welshpool Town in the club's 6-1 defeat to Rhayader in January.

The signing came about after Sky Soccer Saturday host Jeff Stelling made fun of the club losing heavily to local rivals Waterloo Rovers on Boxing Day.

Under the transfer window rules, 'Kammy' – as he is known to his fans – had to sign with the club until the end of the season. Now he has agreed to come out of retirement one more time to play against Newbridge-on-Wye on March 28 at 7.45pm at Maesydre.

Club manager Dave Jones said the publicity generated by Kammy's last appearance had helped secure the cash-strapped club's future until the end of the season.

Mr Jones said: "It really is incredible news for us all. After the last game, Chris text me saying how much he enjoyed the day which speaks volumes for both the club and the town's people as a whole who came out to support the side.

"The season has had its fair share of problems and frustrations but Sky's support has really made it all worthwhile.

"We can expect another big crowd and national exposure to millions of TV viewers."
