Cham­pi­ons League kit thieves Kraut of or­der

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A STU­DENT stole a footie team’s kit­bag from a ho­tel be­fore a Cham­pi­ons League tie with Manch­ester United — then went back to get play­ers’ au­to­graphs, wear­ing one of their track­suits.

Stephen Carruthers, 20, found the bag, con­tain­ing track­suits, shirts and boots from Ger­man side FC Schalke at the Mar­riot Ho­tel in Wors­ley the night be­fore the semi fi­nal in May.

He and two pals were in the ho­tel to meet the Ger­man play­ers, and col­lect sig­na­tures.

Manch­ester Crown Court heard Carruthers took a track­suit, pal Nathan Terry, 19, took out a shirt, and James McWatt, 19, tried on a pair of boots.

The bag was stored in McWatt’s car, and the three were ar­rested when Carruthers went back to the ho­tel wear­ing the Ger­man kit.

The trio were fined £200 each and or­dered to pay court costs.

What’s that? It’s hor­ri­ble!
