HARRY REDKNAPP starred alongside Micah Richards at Potton Bowls Club in Sandy, Bedfordshire for the Round Four of the Carabao Cup draw last night.
Carabao energy drink tends to do things a little differently when it comes to the League Cup draw.
And last night former Tottenham manager Redknapp met with 58-year-old Arsenal fan Garry Gunn, who won a competition to host the draw at his local bowls club.
Redknapp told SunSport: “This takes it to the people where the game belongs.
“It’s great to be at a bowls club, it just shows anyone can be a part of football so I think it’s marvelous especially after the pandemic to do fun things like this.
“After the lockdown, we all suffered for such a long time so it is wonderful seeing crowds back in the football stadiums to bowls clubs. It’s brilliant.”
West Ham’s reward for knocking out Manchester United is a home tie with serial League Cup winners Manchester City.
Preston North End welcome Liverpool, otherwise known as the Ben Davies derby.

Leicester will have to get past high-flying Brighton to add to their FA Cup trophy heroics.
Redknapp added: “I think Brighton could be the dark horses.
“It’s going to be a good competition, I just get disappointed when people put too many weak teams out.
“It doesn’t kill you to play a Cup game and then at the weekend as well.
“They go out in pre-season and play all over the world in China to Australia.
“We have a fantastic competition like this and sometimes we don’t take it seriously as we should do and it’s a terrible shame.”
