An eye-catching way to show your support for Morpeth Town is on the left leg of one of its fans.

Lee Crossley, who moved to Kirkhill eight years ago, decided to get a tattoo to mark the club’s achievement in getting to the final of the FA Vase.

He started watching the team at the start of the season and he now goes along to Craik Park regularly with his six-year-old son Dylan.

“I work at Simply Food and Drink in Abbey Meadows and the shop was promoting Morpeth Town games, so we decided to go along to a couple,” he said.

“We really enjoyed them and this season we’ve been to a lot of league and cup games home and away, including the FA Vase semi-final first leg in Essex.

“I got the tattoo done (from Outback Tattoo in Ashington) on the spur of the moment as I thought it would be a good way to remember the team getting to the final and what is going to be a fantastic weekend in London.

“I’ve told people that I will get another one of the FA Vase trophy if Morpeth win.

“Everyone I’ve spoken to about it says it’s really good and it makes me feel more of a Morpethian.

“It’s unbelievable that the Morpeth is going to Wembley for the first time in its history and it’s a great reward for the efforts of everyone at the club.”
