Blackpool striker Luke Varney has received an unlikely royal seal of approval after receiving kind words from Prince William in a letter sent to the club.

The future king penned the letter to the Seasiders after visiting Bloomfield Road to watch their win over Wolves last month. And his thank you note was full of kind words for Blackpool’s on-loan striker.

He wrote that Varney’s goal would “live long in the memory” and thanked the club for “their wonderfully warm welcome”.

In case it had slipped your own memory, here is the goal that Prince William won’t be forgetting in a hurry.
