A CROYDON rugby club stalwart has become an unlikely Internet sensation – thanks to his singing talents. Martin Clews led his fellow passengers on a busy Friday night train in a rendition of the Afro-American spiritual number Beastie – a popular ditty at his rugby club Old Whitgiftians, in South Croydon. And the merry 64-year-old is now getting worldwide attention, after the clip of him singing aboard the London to Ashford service went viral. Mr Clews's son Dan, who is a singer-songwriter set to play Glastonbury this summer, was so impressed that he may even include the song on his nect album. He told our sister paper, the Sevenoaks Chronicle: "I never thought of my dad as trendy but now he's trendier than I am. "I'm afraid the Clews family has form for this sort of thing. For me, it normally happens when I'm returning from a gig with the guitar. People will always ask you to play something, but with dad, I think he just got an itch to sing." Mr Clews, a strawberry farmer from Kent, had been drinking champagne with pals in London following the launch of Dan's new album. He said: "It seemed to me that like-minded bon viveurs in my carriage might enjoy a jolly song on their way home."
