The former Hereford United giantkiller Ricky George has tipped Pineau De Re in the Grand National, and will donate any winning proceeds to the club.

George, who co-owned Earth Summit to victory in the 1998 National, made the offer during a BBC Hereford & Worcester interview this week.

A £50 each-way bet will be placed in the hope that the 25/1 shot will repeat Earth Summit’s dramatic triumph and boost the clubs fighting fund.

The Legend says: “I’ve got Pineau-De-Rea background in the Grand National and I’m going to donate my bet to the Save the Bulls Fund via the Hereford United Supporters Trust.

“HUST will receive whatever I win and in some small way I’m hopeful that will help.”
