Former QPR and Tottenham legend Andy Sinton appeared on Sam Delaney's show to discuss Game for Grenfell, the charity match being held this weekend for the victims and survivors of the Grenfell Tower disaster.

The game kicks off at 3pm tomorrow (Saturday September 2) at Loftus Road, the home of Queens Park Rangers - the nearest professional club to Grenfell Tower.

Sinton, who played for England in the 1990s and is now a QPR ambassador, spoke to Sam about the purpose of the event and the planning that went into it.

"I like millions of other people on that fateful night in June watched that tragedy unfold," Sinton said, before revealing that QPR owner Tony Fernandes and director of football Les Ferdinand were instrumental in setting up the match.

Sinton went on to reel off a list of star names who will be taking part, from former England striker Alan Shearer to musicians Jarvis Cocker and Marcus Mumford.

He also shed some light on a rather cheeky prank played on Jason Cundy, star of The Sports Bar on our sister station talkSPORT, which has become the stuff of legend in our offices.
