When you have just been promoted, lost your manager and two best players and are searching for your first win of the season the last thing you want is your employers interferring in your sporting passion. Thank you Coca Cola!!
With the game between the Mighty Northampton and Brentford evenly poised at 0-0 at Sixfields on Tuesday night……up steps the fella in the photo (the one in the footy kit!!) to rob our rotund keeper and seal a 1-0 win for the Bees. And he is Chris Moore, Brentford’s new £50,000 signing from Dagenham and Redbridge…..funded by the Coca Cola “win a player” competition. Northampton were gonna struggle to beat many teams in League 1 without the opposition going into partnership with the biggest brand in the world!!
All that is known about the other chap in the picture is that he is lifelong Bees fan Stephen Hearn, 57 and a a member of the Brentford Programme Collectors club.
Finally, the other players signed in “win a player” are Bradley Wright-Phillips for Southampton and Paul Gilchrist for Oxford…….let’s see if they can help subvert the other leagues as well!!!
