Their long-standing on-air sparring has kept listeners tuned in, but now the radio presenter Steven Nolan and DUP MP Gregory Campbell have taken their grievances to the football pitch.
The BBC heavyweight squeezed his ample girth into a goalie’s kit to fend off a different type of attack than usual from the DUP’s Gregory Campbell, all in aid of charity.
In a penalty shoot-out with a difference, it was £100-a-penalty in aid of Men Against Cancer.
Both men wore the colours of Coleraine FC for the mini charity contest which took place at the Co Londonderry town’s Showgrounds.
Nolan made his best efforts to fend off Campbell’s attempts on goal, with £100 going to the charity from Nolan for every goal and the same from Campbell for every miss.
It cost Nolan £200 in failed saves while double-goal scorer Campbell added another £200 to the charity pot.
