Dean Windass, the Hull City striker who scored the goal which sent the Tigers into the Premiership for the first time in their 104-year history, is to be honoured in a similar way to Austrian hero Ivica Vastic.
The Austrian player scored an injury time penalty to give his country a 1-1 draw against arch rivals Poland in the Euro 2008 championships last night, and was honoured by a local brewer with the promise of a lifetime supply of beer.
In a copycat display of gratitude, Rancid Seafoods has now moved to award Hull-born superstar Windass with a lifetime supply of fish.
The generous award will include all Deano's favourites - haddock, cod, plaice, coley, herring and, the aging star's own personal number one, mackerel, which he often has on toast before bedtime.
Windass expressed his gratitude to Rancid Seafoods owner Richard Rancid when he said:
"Ta very much, mate! That'll come in 'andy!"
