Sheila lands dream tickets to watch beloved Norwich City play Manchester United

LUCKY Sheila Horsley will watch her beloved Canaries play Manchester United next year after winning tickets from her building society - for the second time!

Norwich & Peterborough Building Society had six pairs of tickets to give away across its branches to help celebrate Norwich City’s recent promotion to the Premier League.

And Wisbech branch regular Sheila couldn’t believe her luck when she entered the competition and won - 10 years after triumphing in a similar prize draw.

Sheila said: “I couldn’t believe it when I got the call to say that I was one of the lucky winners.

“Can you believe that this is the second time we’ve won tickets from the branch to watch Norwich City play?

The pair will head to Carrow Road in February when Paul Lambert’s team face the reigning champions, managed by the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.
