MARTIN Tyler could be forgiven for wanting to put his feet up and enjoy a quiet snooze on his day off.
After all, at the age of 72, the Voice of Football is past the age most men decide to call it a day.
But the veteran commentator for Sky Sports and FIFA 18 is so passionate about the game, he loves nothing more than tying on his boots and working as coach to non-league side Hampton and Richmond.
Tyler was on the touchline again on Saturday, for the away game and league leaders Havant and Waterlooville.
The commentator was out on the pitch before the game, despite the freezing temperatures, to help the players with their warm-up routine.
He ran the non-league players through their drills and was happy to fetch and throw balls for them.
Then he also joined manager Alan Dowson in the dug-out for the game.
The players are great, I’m old enough to be their grandad but I don’t feel my age.
Tyler leapt to his feet several times during the match as Hampton pressed for a goal.
But at the final whistle the football addict Tyler had to settle for a point as the match remained goalless.
Hampton and Richmond play in the sixth tier of English football, and are nicknamed The Beavers after their home ground The Beveree.
Tyler joined the club in 2014 when Dowson took over, having previously worked in the backroom team with Dowson at Kingstonian and Walton and Hersham.
Tyler told the BBC last year: “Dowse used to coach my son Adam’s Sunday League team – Cobham Boys – and I used to help him put the cones out.

“He got the manager’s job at Walton and Hersham and he asked me to come and help.
“I thought he meant as a press officer but he said come and coach. I loved being back in the dressing room.
“I’m really there to put the balls, bibs and cones out, fill the water bottles.
“The players are great, I’m old enough to be their grandad but I don’t feel my age.
“I can’t run any more but I make them run.”
Tyler has previously revealed his passion for football.
He told The Sunday Times in December: “The smell of the grass I fell in love with in 1953 hasn’t changed.

“I love football. I love football people and being part of the football community.”
Tyler supports another non-league side – Woking – and also played for Corinthian Casuals.
He admitted: “I was a big lump up front.”
Tyler has an incredible career in TV commentary.
He made his commentary debut in December 1974 when Southampton played Sheffield Wednesday in the old Second Division.
Tyler joined Sky in 1990, after growing frustrated at ITV where he was No2 to legendary commentator Brian Moore.
He is most famous for his iconic ‘Agueroooo’ commentary of the Man City star’s title-winning goal in 2012.
The TV veteran was voted Premier League commentator of the decade in 2003 by a panel of fans and football experts.
