Pals Use Spare Ticket to Get Portrait of Jay Z into Scunthorpe v Gillingham After Mate Cancels

Jay Z was at Glanford Park over the weekend to watch Scunthorpe take on Gillingham in League One.

Not really.

James Ellis, Alex Perry and their two pals were due to attend the game between Scunny and the Gills but were rocked by a late cancellation.

So, left with one spare ticket, what did they do? They thought best to get in touch with Kanye West to ask if Jay Z fancied joining them.

Unsurprisingly, Kanye was tied up – as was Jay Z probably – but worry not, James and the lads had a plan.

Instead, hey pulled down a portrait picture of the hip hop legend from the wall of one of their homes and took it to the game in place of their mate.

What’s even better is that staff at County’s Glanford Park actually took their fourth ticket so they could get Jay Z through the door (at this point we’ll start referring to him as Jay.. he is a person after all according to Scunthorpe).

Ellis said:

There were meant to be four of us going but one dropped out last minute.

So we decided to take a portrait of Jay Z in his place.

As we had already bought the tickets, we used the spare to get Jay in the ground.

Meaning the official attendance of 3,763 included Jay.

James and the boys then headed to their seats with Jay getting a brilliant view as Scunthorpe fought out a 2-1 win over Gillingham to give their relegation survival hopes a huge boost.

At one point things got a bit crazy with Jay:

And after spending a brilliant day with Mr Carter, Perry made sure to let Kanye know they wouldn’t be needing the real thing:
