Stars and Strikes

A host of United’s biggest names bagged a different kind of strike when they took part in a one-off game of ‘football bowling’ for the latest Betfair Mobile advert.

In the ad, Ashley Young takes on Dimitar Berbatov and Patrice Evra, who attempt to floor the ten pins using lightweight footballs.
The Reds players are joined by team mates Darren Fletcher and Andres Lindegaard as well as couch potato and footballing wannabe Chris Weber, a rank outsider to win the contest to knock down as many pins as possible in 40 seconds.

Reflecting on the challenge, Young said: “It was harder than I thought it would be because of the weight of the ball and having to strike it so low over a relatively short length of space. Hats off to Patrice and Berba; they showed unbelievable skills. And all I can say about Chris is ‘he tried his best!’”
