TWO former Whites stars enjoyed mixed fortunes in the dads’ race at their children’s school sports days.

Miracle man Fabrice Muamba showed he has still got it, racing to victory at the Ryleys school in Cheshire.

His wife, Shauna Muama posted a picture on Twitter.

She said: “I had to post this. Fabrice won the dads’ race at the Ryleys sports day. They all look so focused. It’s just a race, dads!”

Meanwhile, former Wanderers captain Kevin Davies, still plying his trade for Preston North End, was not allowed to take part in a similar event at his own children’s school.

The Whites legend tweeted a picture of the other dads racing.

He said: “I wasn’t allowed to play! My sunglasses fell off I was laughing so much ... #competitivedads.”

Good on him for attending, never mind taking part in the race.
I think it's great that dads make the effort more than they did in my day.
