Sutton meets FA Cup end as goalkeeper devours pie
FOOTBALL: Talk about eating humble pie. Sutton United back-up keeper Wayne Shaw stole the show as his side's fairytale FA Cup run came to an end at the hands of Arsenal.
With the minnows down 1-0 and headed for a 2-0 loss at Gander Green Lane, Shaw curried off to the concession stands, bought a meat pie, and then ate it on the sideline during the second half.
But, in a plot twist, the fun quickly turned into a conspiracy as some incredulous fans wondered if the second-half snack was pre-planned
Sutton had earlier signed a deal with The Sun newspaper's betting outfit.
After the match, Sun Bets followed up with the announcement that the live pie-eating moment earned some betters a handsome payout.
The south Londoners had been contesting their first ever fifth-round game.
No less than 105 places separated them from EPL powerhouse Arsenal in England's football pyramid, with Sutton sitting 17th in the fifth-tier National League.
