Make mine a flake please, Mike!

BIRTH­DAY boy Michael Brown proved a cool hand with his Port Vale team-mates this week by turn­ing up for train­ing in an ice cream van.

Cel­e­brat­ing his 39th birth­day, the mid­fielder hired the van off a lo­cal sales­man to give the im­pres­sion of a sum­mer’s day in late Jan­uary.

“Nor­mally when it’s your birth­day, you’re meant to bring in cakes or crois­sants or flap­jacks – some treats for the lads,” he said.

“So they were say­ing, ‘come on Browny you’re get­ting on now, you’ve got to do some­thing spe­cial for us’.

“We oc­ca­sion­ally get a ba­con sand­wich or some­thing like that for the lads, so they were say­ing for me to do a butty van or that sort of thing.

“I thought that a big ba­con and egg sand­wich shop isn’t ideal, so I thought ‘what about ice creams’?”

Per­haps a ca­reer with Rossi awaits the for­mer Sh­effield United and Leeds player, who looks an ex­pert at mak­ing a 99.
