Paul scores with Stoke city season ticket win

September 01, 2010

Lucky Stoke city football club fan, Paul Burton, received more than just a new savings account, when his bank gave him season tickets to watch his beloved side.

Paul, a long standing Potters supporter, was entered into the competition to win the tickets after he opened a Britannia ‘save and support’ account linked to the club.

The pair of season tickets was presented to Paul by Stoke city winger and last year’s ‘player of the year’, Matty Etherington.

Mike Barnes, Relationship Manager at Britannia (also pictured), said: “We have a longstanding relationship with Stoke City FC and wanted to offer our customers and fans of the club the bonus of watching their team play live throughout the season.”

Paul is such a big Potters fan that he already holds a season ticket, but is delighted than he will now be able to take family and friends to match days.
