Young Exeter City fan dresses up as Paul Tisdale for World Book Day

3 March 2017

Best-dressed youngster creates an impression in Ted Baker hat

A young Exeter City fan has created quite an impression on Twitter after dressing up for his school’s World Book Day as Grecians manager Paul Tisdale.

Six-year-old Jamie Spinks, a season ticket holder in the Stagecoach Family Stand, must have been the best-dressed child in his class on Thursday as he donned an original Ted Baker hat – signed by Paul Tisdale – along with a cravat and waistcoat to look like his favourite football manager. 

His mother, Kate Hodges, took a picture of her son and posted it on Twitter where it got nearly 200 likes and plenty of retweets from City fans impressed with the youngster snappy dress sense. 

“We had an Exeter City book (Never Say Die) which has a picture of Paul Tisdale on the cover,” explained Kate. “We were reading though it to build Jamie’s reading and I suggested that he dressed up as Paul Tisdale for World Book Day.

“He (Jamie) thought it was a great idea. He looked very trendy in those clothes and the hat is an original Ted Baker one as my dad won it in an end of season auction at the club. So, it is one of Tis’ hats and he has actually signed it underneath.”
 
Jamie’s efforts for World Book Day have not gone unnoticed by Paul Tisdale either. The City manager saw the Tweet on Thursday and has got a book from the club shop, which he will sign and present to Jamie at the Accrington Stanley home match on Saturday.
