Early Bath for Polish Stag Weekend as Birmingham Triumph

Four Birmingham City season ticket holders cut short their stag weekend in Poland to attend yesterday's League Cup Final against Arsenal at Wembley. Costing an extra £70 each, the lads were due to return from Gdansk after the match, but groom Warren Bassett was quick to rearrange after Birmingham's triumph over West Ham in the semi-final.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail, Bassett said:

“It’s a game we just knew we couldn’t miss. This is the first major cup final at Wembley in our lifetimes.”

The 31-year old IT analyst from Solihull attended the final and would have been delighted to see his side end a 48 year trophy drought by claiming an unlikely 2-1 victory over Arsenal. Obafemi Martins hit the 92nd minute winner after a defensive mix-up between vowel-shy keeper Wojciech Szcesny and the hapless centre-back Laurent Koscielny.

The rest of Warren’s stag party had to be content with watching the game on a bar stool in a Polish pub. Poor blighters.

Find out how you and your mates could play football against a Polish side on your stag do.
