Sometimes picking a team to support is a daunting task, but when your born in Manchester, it’s even harder to choose as this father finds out, so he reverted to an eBay auction in hopes of making the choice easier.
In efforts to raise money for charity, Ian put up an auction for people to select either the Red Devils or the Sky Blue for his son as he will try his best to make sure he supports the selected club.
“I live in Greater Manchester, but originally come from down south so I have no affiliation with either of the Manchester clubs,’ he told the Manchester Evening News.
“I’ll be fighting a losing battle trying to get my son to support my team [Watford]. Frankly, I wouldn’t want to inflict that on the poor child anyway.
“I’ll do all I can to encourage him [to support the chosen team]. I’ll get him the top and the curtains and take him to the odd game. I won’t be able to force him. But I’ll do all I can to encourage him.
“I was thinking of ways of fundraising. It just popped into my head. I thought ‘little bit controversial but why not’ and gave it a go.”
Eddie Charters’ footballing allegiance is now in the hands of fans all over the world!
