Re­verse keeper eats meat pie on side­lines in bet­ting stunt

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

LON­DON - A 45-year-old backup goal­keeper used his team’s big mo­ment against Arse­nal to take part in a bet­ting stunt.

A Bri­tish news­pa­per’s bet­ting com­pany, which spon­sored Sut­ton United for the game, had 8-1 odds that over­weight re­serve goal­keeper Wayne Shaw would eat a meat pie dur­ing Mon­day’s FA Cup match.

Af­ter Sut­ton had used all its sub­sti­tu­tions and there was no chance Shaw would ap­pear in the 2-0 loss to Arse­nal, he munched on the pie while sit­ting on the bench. The footage of Shaw eat­ing was broad­cast on the BBC.
