Sports enthusiast Mick Thickbroom takes in Town game for 50th birthday celebrations

22 May 2019

Australian football enthusiast, Mick Thickbroom took in Fleetwood Town’s final home game against Sunderland as part of a whirling sporting tour of the UK to celebrate his 50th birthday.

The Darwin based electrician flew into Gatwick Airport before taking in Liverpool v Huddersfield, Brighton v Newcastle, Manchester City v Burnley and Leicester v Arsenal before his trip to Highbury.

Mick enjoyed the game at Highbury, and whilst at the ground, he picked up some club merchandise and also found out what a Fleetwood chippy tea was like – with chippy being the Australian equivalent of a carpenter!

The sporting journey picked up pace with a visit to the Crucible for the snooker, then a trip to Manchester for darts, and then ground hops to Everton’s Goodison Park where they faced Burnley, and then onto St James’ Park for Newcastle versus Liverpool - and what a game that would have been for Mick!

Mick made the trip to Hillsborough to watch Sheffield Wednesday take on Queens Park Rangers before heading back home. We hope you had a great – albeit short - time on the Fylde Coast, and on your tour of the United Kingdom.

Happy belated Birthday Mick!
