Know The Score Books is delighted to announce that the winner of their competition in association with E.ON, sponsors of The FA Cup, will receive his fantastic prize of having The FA Cup for a day this weekend, Saturday 28 July.

The competition was run on Borders' website and attracted over 1,500 entries, making it one of the most popular ever.

Gary Stodel of North Lopham, Norfolk, won The FA Cup for a day thanks to Know The Score Books and E.ON, the energy behind The FA Cup, and will parade the trophy around his hometown this Saturday, including taking it down to his local pub, The King's Head, for a drink.

There is another aspect to the day as Gary's wife sadly has cancer and is currently being treated at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, so the Stodels have decided, in conjunction with sponsors E.ON to use The FA Cup to help raise funds for local cancer charity The Big C. Local people are being asked to come along to have their photograph taken with The FA Cup and donate money to the charity.

All national and East Anglia press are invited to the event which runs from 10am to 5pm. Gary Stodel will also be available for comment before and after the event. Please contact the Know The Score Books office for specifics.

Simon Lowe, Managing Director of Know The Score Books, said: "This is a wonderful opportunity to give something back to the community, raise significant funds for a very worthwhile cause and for Know The Score Books to stamp its identity on sports publishing in an extremely newsworthy fashion."
