Dad and lad are up for the Cup
11:56am Saturday 27th March 2010 in Sport
ITS set to be a proper father and son weekend.
Hampshire granddad Tom Mason has won not just tickets to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final but also a stay at the Jury’s Inn Watford.
Thanks to the Daily Echo the Locks Heath resident will travel up for the big day and be able to enjoy a few drinks after the match before heading back to the hotel.
Tom will travel to the game on the day of the final with son Chris, 47, who also lives in Locks Heath.
Having just celebrated his 74th birthday all Tom’s luck seems to be coming at once as he won £15 on Find the Ball just last week.
“I can’t believe it, I think I’m on a roll,” said Tom. “I’m really looking forward to it now though, it’ll be great to see Saints at Wembley.
“All my luck’s coming at once and long may it continue and with a Saints win hopefully.
“We seem to rise to the occasion like we did against Leeds and Norwich this season so I’m feeling positive.”
