TV funnyman Patrick Monahan has been offered a chance to get his shooting boots back on ahead of his brand new tour - with the high-flying MFC Ladies inviting him to join their training sessions 'whenever he likes.'
It is an invitation that Patrick is only too keen to accept - attempting to reclaim the "glory days of flying down the wing for Redcar Juniors all those years ago."
Patrick sponsors MFC Ladies winger Kenzie Parkes, and is impressed by the 'great season' the team are enjoying so far.
Playing their homes games at Thornaby FC's Teesdale Park, the team are currently flying high in third place in the league, just two points off top spot, and have also just qualified for the third round of the FA Cup against Blackburn Rovers.
Patrick, who plays Middlesbrough Town Hall Crypt on Saturday 17 May as part of a 43-date national tour said: "I love football, and used to run up and down the wing as fast I could without being tackled.
"But just look at what a great season this lot are having! They'd be running rings round me all day long, that's for sure."
MFC Ladies Manager Sammie Leigh said: "It's great to have Patrick as one of our fans and sponsors, and we love him to bits too.
"We know he fancies himself as a tricky winger, so let's see if he's still got the old magic on the pitch.
"He's welcome to join our training sessions anytime he likes, and we're all looking forward to seeing him at the Town Hall in May.
"It'll be getting on for the end of our season by then, so let's see if we can't make sure we have something great to celebrate on the night."
Already a popular figure on the UK comedy circuit, Patrick wowed millions of TV fans on the way to winning ITV's Show Me The Funny in 2011.
Renowned for his great stories and described by comedy critics as a 'huge force of nature,' the loveable Teessider has also charmed crowds as far apart as Adelaide, Abu Dhabi, Barbados, Spain, France, Luxembourg, Germany and bags more besides.
Now, he's looking forward to bringing last year's huge Edinburgh Festival hit Cake Charmer to Boro for what he describes as his 'hometown gig.'
Patrick said: "The Town Hall was always something to look up to when I was growing up, so playing there is always extra special as far as I'm concerned.
"The show went down great in Edinburgh last summer - and there's something for all the family to enjoy.
"There'll be cakes, there'll be hugs - just not all at the same time."
