Heavy metals rockers Motorhead will soon have a new legion of fans after striking a deal to sponser a Lincoln boys’ football team. The Greenbank under-10s B team will now feature the band’s name on their shirts along with Motorhead’s motif – a skull named Snaggletooth.
The North Hykeham team will also take the field to Motorhead’s classic single “Ace of Spades.” The team is also planning to have a photograph with the legendary rockers before their Rock City gig in Nottingham on Nov. 19th.
The Motorhead deal came about from a friendship between Team manager Gary Weight, and Motorhead frontman Lemmy.
“It was from a bizarre idea one evening. I sent an email off to them and they came back and said it was a great idea. I knew Lemmy years ago and for him, I think the thought of a football team running out with the Motorhead logo made him chuckle a bit, so that’s where it’s come from,” said Mr Weight.
Weight also stated he hopes the band and their music will help inspire the team to even stronger performances on the field.
“The hope is that we can go out on the football pitch and terrorise the opponents and come away worthy winners,” he said.
