The 28-year-old supporter and season-ticket holder from Deiniolen has since had a celebratory design created and had it tattooed on his leg.

Hughes has toured a number of media outlets with his story and is quoted as saying:

I was in the offy and I bought myself some beers and a bottle of wine for the missus.

As we came out my mate had spotted him and was taking a selfie.

I thought I wasn’t going to part with my beers so I gave him my missus’ Echo Falls.

She wasn’t happy but when I explained to her she was all right about it.
