Divided loyalties lead football shirt winner to give prize away

MORE readers have been celebrating thanks to the Evening Mail.

Among the competition winners this week was Alan Hughes, of Cloisters Avenue, Barrow.

Mr Hughes won a replica England shirt but the retired construction worker is giving it to his son-in-law due to a conflict of nationalities and sports.

He said: “My dad was Welsh and my mum was English. I just don’t wear England football shirts, I wear Welsh rugby shirts instead!

“Two weeks ago it probably would have been selling for £90, but, after how the World Cup went, they are probably flogging them off for £2.

“It’s for one of my sons-in-law. He’s a West Ham supporter so he’ll wear anything...”

The other winner of an England shirt was Joan Ward of Barrow.

Kerry Longmire, 42, from Barrow, won the week’s £50 fuel voucher and said the money will help her son speed along in moto-cross competitions.

The mother of two said: “My youngest son does motor cross and his competitions are all over the place. I won’t see any of the money.

“He races in national competitions. It will pay for the petrol for his bike or it will contribute to the diesel for his travelling.”

Marian Chapples, of Millom, received two tickets for Whitehaven Live.

She is set to see acts including the Boomtown Rats and the Stranglers.

She said: “I’ve entered a few competitions before and I read the Evening Mail every night.

“I’m going to go with my husband.”
