A football fan who changed his name by Deed Poll to Motherwell Football Club has said he did it to prove he is the club’s most dedicated supporter.
Student Frazer Boyle, 20, from Coltness in North Lanarkshire, changed his name on Tuesday in a bid to win £1,000 in a radio station competition.
Mr Football Club, who is studying multimedia at Glasgow Caledonian University, said: "I changed my name because I had entered a competition on the radio to show how dedicated a football fan I was. It was officially changed on Tuesday and it still is Motherwell Football Club and it will be for the forseeable future.
"It's a bit disorientating at time. At the game I wonder whether people saying Motherwell are talking to me."
Mr Football Club said he had been a season ticket holder for a "long time" and had supported Motherwell since he was nine.
Asked what the reaction of friends and family had been to the move, he said: "Mostly positive, they were a bit shocked at first but they can see it's a bit jovial."
He said he may use the name to help raise money for charities he supports.
His mother Hazel Boyle, 45, said: "I was at my work and he phoned me. I thought he was kidding me on, making it up. I did not think he would really change his name.
"I was ready to give him a clip around the ear. He is Motherwell daft and has already been to France and Wales in the past year to watch them; I think that is punishment enough. As long as he is happy that is the main thing."
