A win-win situation for Carlisle United fans!

The Johnstone’s Paint Trophy is offering to buy the beers at Wembley for some lucky Carlisle United fans, courtesy of a final ticket giveaway at its Johnstone’s Decorating Centre on Currock Road.

The trophy is giving away 30 tickets for diehard supporters on Monday March 28 worth £34 a piece – as long as they make a £30 purchase at the decorating centre.

Not only will supporters be able to walk away with some of the hottest seats at the final and some of the finest paint products on the market, but they will also have £4 left over to buy a celebratory pint of beer on the big day itself.

The incentive is the first of its kind ever to be unveiled by the trophy and will operate on a first come first serve basis at its Johnstone’s Decorating Centre on Currock Road, between 2pm and 5pm on Monday March 28.

Sponsorship manager Teresa Hardwick said: “It is a win-win situation for fans. We are giving away tickets which will actually be more than the price of the Johnstone’s Paint purchase.

“Not only will supporters will be lighter in the pocket, but their homes will look even more attractive with the paint product they purchase.

“If ever a set of supporters deserved something from the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy then it was Carlisle United’s.

“They followed their team to Wembley in their droves last season and will be at it again a week on Sunday.”

Fans are invited to attend from 2pm to stand a chance of winning the tickets.

Meanwhile, the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy will also be officially congratulating young fans Robbie Cowley and Lewis Casson from 4pm at the decorating centre, who won the half time penalty shoot-out competition.

They will meet Olga the Fox and will get a chance to get their hands on the trophy, which will also be at the decorating centre for supporters to catch a glimpse of.

And to complete a hat-trick of events on Monday March 28, lifelong fan Trevor Rogerson will be given his tickets to the final, after winning the chance to officially present the match ball to the referee moments before kick off.

Teresa concluded: “There will be a great deal of action on the pitch come April 3, but we will again be creating headlines off it, and we couldn’t think of a better set of fans to do this with but Carlisle’s.”
