50 hit by Premier club bug.

Byline: By JAMES HARPER

BOSSES at Southampton Football Club have been ordered to clean up their act after 50 VIP guests were hit by a mystery bug.

Environmental health officials carried out tests at the Premiership side's St Mary's Stadium after guests attending charity and corporate events came down with sickness and diarrhoea.

Twenty-five people fell ill after a dance to raise money for Tsunami victims.

A further 25 guests attending a Southampton Institute conference held at the club were also hit by the suspected outbreak of the virulent Norwalk virus.

A spokesman for Southampton City Council said the club had been advised to make sure any ill staff stayed at home.

"They have also been asked to make sure cleaning procedures are properly carried out," he added.

The problems come as manager Harry Redknapp returns to his old side Portsmouth today for their crunch relegation clash.
