Sheff Utd fan climbs up traffic light to celebrate and player lobs him a beer

One lucky Sheffield United fan was chucked a beer by one of his Blades heroes as the players celebrated their return to the Premier League.

Videos have emerged from the club's open-top bus parade celebrating promotion to the Premier League of one cheeky fan climbing up a traffic light to gain a better vantage point. And as the bus came past – the players were quick to notice the supporter as they laughed and offered high fives.

However, goalkeeper Wes Foderingham then offered the man a beer, who quickly accepted the offer. The player tossed the can across to the fan, who caught it to a huge cheer from the crowd.

One supporter joked: "Nothing is more Northern than this!"

"Looks like Wes Foderingham’s distribution has improved since leaving us," another persob joked. While a third tweeted: "If that was me, that player would instantly become my favourite!"

Thousands of fans lined the streets of Sheffield to catch a glimpse of their heroes, who had returned Premier League football to the city. The Blades finished second in the Championship, claiming the second, and last, automatic promotion spot on offer.

The players were later dropped off at Sheffield Town Hall where the celebrations could continue. The players then emerged on the balcony as fans started to chant for their favourites.

James McAtee was at the centre of the chants as fans begged him to stay at the Blades – instead of returning to his parent club Manchester City. The fans could be heard chanting: "He’s a Blade and he’s a Blade!"
