A Tring Athletic football star put in a man of the match performance as he delivered his son in the back of his car.

Graham Hall, 33, was en route to hospital with wife Abi, but the couple were caught short and Graham was forced to move from playing midfield to playing midwife at the side of the road.

The Athletic skipper was at a training session when he received calls from wife Abi, 32, to tell him their second child was on its way.

Graham rushed back home from training, and he and Abi set off for Stoke Mandeville hospital in their Vauxhall Astra – but son Ben Charlie was in no mood to hang around.
