Proving once again that he’s a decent sort, Jon Walters quite literally stopped in his tracks this week to donate money to one of Everton’s most… shall we say “instantly recognisable” fans.
Michael Cullen, better known as Speedo Mick, is once again out there traipsing along the highways and byways of England while wearing next to nothing in a bid to raise money for charity.
