Jamie Vardy has not only written his name into Leicester
City folklore with his 22 goals that have ensured that
Leicester City are on the brink of winning the title, he has
also gotten his name written into the hearts of a family,
after a fan convinced his wife to name their child Vardy
after getting 5000 Leicester city fans to sign an online
petition.
Leicester fan Ashley Marriott has managed to convince his
partner to give their unborn child the middle name “Vardy”
in tribute of the striker.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Marriott said:
“I’ve got a daughter on the way and we’re naming
her after Vardy as a middle name.”
He had to get 5,000 petition signatures in order to persuade
the mum-to-be, something he achieved at a canter.
“That was done weeks ago, it was well over 5,000 –
so it’s definitely on. Her and her family are all Spurs
fans so it’s good for me!”
“I wish [it was Jamie]. But I don’t think with even
half a million signatures she would agree to that,
even though it’s a unisex name!”
