SAINTS hero Mick Channon has had to pull out of a Legends of Football evening with Matt Le Tissier O2 Guildhall on Thursday night.

The event will still go ahead as Lawrie McMenemy has agreed to replace Channon, who is suffering with sciatica.

Refunds are available and tickets are still on sale for the event, which begins at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Organiser Jim McCalliog, the former Saints midfielder, said: "I'm grateful to Lawrie for stepping in and wish Mick all the best for a full recovery."
