​Fan wins Billy's boots

25 May 2016

These signed Billy Sharp boots are heading to Blades fan Shaun Nicholls, of Whiston, Rotherham.


Shaun entered a competition in UTB - United's official matchday programme - midway through the season. Our popular programme asked for New Year predictions about who would win the Barclays Premiership, as well as the Sky Bet Championship and League Two. There was also a tiebreaker asking how many goals Billy would score throughout the season.


Despite quite a number of entries, the standard was not so high and only two fans predicted that Chris Wilder's Northampton Town would win League Two - it appears Leicester City's capture of the Premiership caught people out, as did Burnley's late season consistency.


Shaun predicted that the Cobblers would win League Two and wins the boots by virtue that he was closer to Billy's actual goal tally. Shaun reckoned Billy would score 24 when the actual amount was 21.


Unluckily for Bletchley's Paul Brewer, he believed Billy would get 25 goals, as well as predicting Northampton's title triumph. As he was so close, UTB have had Billy sign a programme as a consolation prize for Paul.


Congrats to both Shaun and Paul, who have been contacted to claim their prizes.
