'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Shearer Gets Top Man

Sunderland chairman Nial Quinn was the first player in the north-east to hand over his testimonial money to charity, and ex-Toon skipper Alan Shearer followed suit. And the Newcastle legend coaxed the Prime Minister last to hand over the cheque for 1.64 million to worthy causes.

Tony Blair described the 36-year-old as 'the best'. Shearer donated the proceeds of his testimonial fund to 14 local charities.

Blair: 'We would all like to play football like someone, but this guy was just the best. It's a tremendous honour for me to come along and participate in what is an act of generosity from a man who is remarkable. The pressures and the rewards of being at the top of football are tremendous, but not everyone puts something back in. But he has.'
