A Melton pub is on the hunt for the most over-the-top goal celebrations.

The Welby, in Nottingham Road, is on the lookout for locals whose jubilation after their team score can match those of the players on the pitch.

Greene King, who own The Welby, is offering £1,000 for the best CeleBEERtion, and has joined forces with footballing legend Jimmy Bullard, whose 2009 celebration mocking former manager Phil Brown is regarded as one of the greatest of all time.

Jimmy said: “It’s hard to beat the excitement you feel when your team scores. Apart from the stadium, there’s no better place to watch a game than down the pub, so we want to find the best Melton football fan celebrations.

“Whether you pull your shirt over your head like Ravenelli, do the Peter Crouch robot, or your own unique move, we want to see it.”

The competition is being launched through the Welby’s ‘Season Ticket’ discount card, which offers guests 10 per cent off selected drinks during live football.

Samuel Thorpe, general manager at the Welby, said: “We know that nothing beats getting together with your mates to watch a match in the pub. The football season is well under way and we really want our guests to show their support for the beautiful game.

“We’ve seen some fantastic celebrations over the years from our guests, so know that Melton’s got talent.”

To enter the competition, football fans just need to upload a video of their celebration to the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/GKSeasonTicket before October 2.
