Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia and their British manager Dylan Kerr have been doing a bit of sightseeing in Liverpool ahead of their SportPesa Trophy match tonight.

While Kerr cast an eye over the opposition in their 3-1 victory over Brighton on Saturday and paid a visit to the Cavern Club which was immortalised by the Beatles, his team ran into Everton’s very own fundraising legend, Speedo Mick.

Wearing walking boots, hat and speedos may seem an unusual choice for a match day outfit, but after swimming the icy English Channel waters to fundraise for charity (despite having to learn to swim first), Michael Cullen, or Speedo Mick as he’s more commonly known, decided to turn up to watch his beloved Everton this three-piece.

Over the last four years, Mick has raised nearly £100,000 for a number of charities and his enthusiasm for fundraising shows no sign of waning.

Tonight’s match kicks off at 7pm (GMT) / 10pm (Kenya time).
