Burnham-On-Sea youngster wins Manchester City competition

A football-mad Burnham-On-Sea youngster enjoyed a day to remember after winning a top competition.

Niall Francis won an official shirt signed by all the members of the title-chasing Premiership team Manchester City.

And, during a visit to watch a match at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium, he also met former world boxing champion, Ricky Hatton.

Niall - who is a season ticket holder at the Etihad Stadium and travels to all home games - was "absolutely delighted".

He won the competition after entering an Electronic Arts FIFA 2012 football contest. The shirt has taken pride of place in his family's Burnham-On-Sea home, where they are all mad blues fans.
