THE original 150th FA Cup final BBC sign as seen on TV last weekend is up for auction – with the proceeds going to a Southend mental health charity.

The sign, which was on display in the studio behind Match of the Day presenters Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer, and Micah Richards – who have signed it – is on sale on E-bay.

Currently listed at about £110, money raised from the sale will go towards the total raised at the Chris Barker charity game for SECE Mind at Roots Hall on Saturday, May 28.
