A CAMBOURNE youngster has been given a free ticket to see his favourite football team play... by the team manager.

Ten-year-old Luke Bishop received the special surprise when Cambridge United's manager Jimmy Quinn hand delivered the ticket for the upcoming match against Salisbury City.

Luke was the thousandth person to apply for free tickets to the match, and as well as receiving a surprise visit was also given a replica top signed by the players.

Luke's mother, Tracy Bishop said: "Luke absolutely loves football and was thrilled when he found out he had won the ticket."

Luke, a pupil at Monkfield Park Primary School, will watch the game with his dad Lee, uncles Richard and Ryan, and brothers Jamie and Kane.

More than 60,000 workers and residents of Cambourne and Abbey Ward were invited to apply for free tickets for the match on Saturday, October 20.
