A KIND hearted local business has made a generous donation to a local girls football team, while they took part in a humorous forfeit event.

B&B cafe and Takeaway on Hamilton Street in Saltcoats handed over a cheque for £125 to Ardrossan Winton Rovers under 12 girls side on Tuesday, August 16.

It was while they blasted in penalties at former Saltocats Victoria stopper Patrick Tomelty, who found himself in this situation after a bet with B&B.

He had bet with the business that England women would lose their Euro 2022 cup final against Germany - and that he would receive a free breakfast as a result. However, if he was wrong, he would have to partake in a forfeit.

As we are sure everyone heard, the Lionesses went out and won 2-1 in extra time thanks to a Chloe Kelly goal, so Patrick would not be getting his free breakfast.

And he stuck to his word, and to further show how the women's game is growing, his forfeit was to face penalties from the stars of tomorrow.

Patrick back between the sticks

The girls from Winton under 12s thoroughly enjoyed putting Patrick through his paces, and accepting the generous support of a local family run business.

Michael Buttle from B&B Cafe and Takeaway commented: "It was a brilliant wee night for the girls, and of course the fantastic 'Patrick Tomelty' for completing his forfeit."

Well done to all involved, from the Herald team!
