Football fan from Norwich wins Arsenal shirt
A football fan from the city has been the lucky winner of his dream team's football shirt.
Although from Norwich, Liam Jones is an Arsenal fan, and won a signed framed Arsenal shirt courtesy of Barclays Premier League trophy tour.
Liam, 18, entered a free prize draw for one of 20 framed shirts signed by a Premier League Football Club when he visited an Oxford branch to view the Premier League Trophy.
Commenting on his lucky win, Liam Jones said: 'I was amazed to even see the trophy in real life, this was shock enough. I was about to leave, when I got asked to enter this competition. I was hesitant at first as I don't normally enter competitions, but I really did like the sound of winning my team's shirt, signed and framed! Months and months passed and I completely forgot about it, until I got a phone call informing me I had won. I couldn't quite believe it, shock then led to excitement, already picturing the shirt on my bedroom wall above my bed! '
The framed shirt was presented to Liam at the Sprowston Road branch in Norwich on January 19 by Barclays area director, Terry Staff, and branch manager, Joanne Dowson.
