Stoke steward keeps the magic of the FA Cup alive by crowd surfing with Wolves fans

He's like a modern day Ronnie Radford

There has been much talk about how the FA Cup is no longer the great competition it once was.

It’s the oldest knockout tournament in world football but the Premier League millions and increasing pressure from European club football have meant the old pot is not quite as magical as perhaps it once was.

So bravo to this steward at Stoke’s bet365 Stadium who is doing his level best to put the fun back into the game.

Here he is crowd surfing with Wolves fans during the Championship side’s 2-0 win over the Potters on Saturday.

Twitter user Jon Foster originally uploaded the clip and says the steward in question is a Wolves fan.

No doubt he is breaking a whole raft of the very health and safety regulations he is employed to enforce, but everyone seems to be enjoying themselves so what the hell.
