Wesley Duncan has taken matters into his own hands as a result of football ticket prices increasing so much over the past few years. The married, father of three who has supported Stoke City FC since he was a boy refused to pay the £20.00 per match ticket anymore, instead he decided to invest in a brand new scissor lift.
Duncan's idea is to park the scissor lift at the corner of the stadium, then hoist himself up high enough that he can see well onto the pitch. His theory is that although he had to fork out the money for the initial purchase of the scissor lift, he will actually save money in the long run especially if ticket prices continue to increase the way they are doing. So far he has only taken the scissor lift to his local ground but he says that he plans to go around the country with it so that he never has to miss a game again.
When interviewed Mr Duncan had this to say "I'm fed up of these football clubs trying to rip us off, the prices are too high for the working class to continually pay, if they try and take my scissor lift off me I'll fight back".
Wesley Duncan has plans to add an extra seat within the scissor lift so that he can sell it to another fan at a "reasonable" price.
