As football supporters across the land continue to twiddle their thumbs during the excruciating close season, the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy has decided to ask fans what other sport is tickling their fancy as a substitute.

The ‘gentleman’s game’ of cricket is widely accepted as the nation’s summer sport, but Johnstone’s want fans to have their say as the meat pies and matchday magic remain a distant memory.

So whether it is cricket, tennis, golf or even darts, supporters are being urged to let the competition know what is tickling their fancy as a sporting substitute to football.

Johnstone’s Paint Trophy brand services manager Tom Newton said: “As passionate football fans ourselves, we are all missing the Beautiful Game, let alone the start of the new Johnstone’s Paint Trophy season.

“As a bit of fun to occupy people’s minds during the close season, we are going to find out what our official summer sport really is.”

One lucky person who enters the poll on the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy’s official website will win an official Johnstone’s Paint Trophy football, signed by goalscoring great and TV pundit Mark Bright.

Once each fan has entered the poll, they are asked to email sally.binns@ppg.com with their contact details to stand a chance of winning the prize.
