AND FINALLY

The lengths and depths the lovers of the Beautiful game will go to.

A football fan overjoyed at a player signing for his team has got his name tattooed on his bottom after making a promise on Twitter. Scott Reay tweeted he would get an Alan Judge tattoo if the midfielder signed a permanent contract with Ipswich Town. He said he was “true to my word” and “had to get it done” when “Judgey” penned the deal with the Tractor Boys. Mr Reay, 32, from Newcastle, said: “He’s such a good player, I thought there would be no chance he’d stay.” The sales assistant had the name Judgey and the Ipswich Town crest tattooed on his backside. He said it “was just a bit of banter at first” but “blew up” as soon as Ipswich Town retweeted his post. Mr Reay said he “didn’t really know why” he supported Ipswich except for liking tractors when he was younger.
