During the club’s recent tour of America, MCFC staff were endeared by the story of Ian and Collette; two lifelong Blues who upon hearing that City were due to spend a week in New York, decided to not only join the team out there but get married too!
Having met some ten years ago whilst on a night out in Bolton, Collette initially offered sympathy to Ian whose family consisted of a United supporting father, a mother with a seasonticket at Leeds and a Bolton-mad brother.
However, rather than distancing herself from Ian’s passion for the Blues, Collette was hooked after attending her first match against Stoke at Maine Road and joined her new husband in having a seasonticket ever since.
After the Blues’ tour rolled through NYC, the City mad couple decided to extend their stay in the states by an extra five days, taking in the sights and sounds of Las Vegas.
Having been engaged for many years prior to the trip, it was agreed that the couple would marry whilst in Las Vegas in True Blue style including City home shirts, white roses with sky blue ribbons and even a blue Hummer stretch-limo!
On July 28th, Ian and Collette tied the knot at the Little White Chapel, Las Vegas.
Everyone at MCFC wishes them both all the very best for the future!
