A Grimsby Town fan is set to name his son after the side’s top goalscorer Pádraig Amond, if his girlfriend goes into labour within the next twenty-four hours.
National League top scorer Amond has already netted 32 times this season in a remarkable promotion-challenging campaign for the Irish striker.
And one Grimsby supporter hopes to be able to name his child “little baby Pádraig”, “if [his partner] goes into labour in the next 24 hours”, “in honour of the great man”.
Also a Town fan, the baby’s uncle tweeted details of the promise, to which the team and Amond were then alerted:
