A Burnley fan who threw a pound coin at Joe Hart is on the run from Police today after authorities claim he is now the new legal owner of Burnley Football Club.

The coin missed Joe Hart but was promptly picked up by owner Mike Garlick who immediately tried to track the culprit down in order to give him a receipt.

Det Sgt Kenny Dagleish said: “Throwing coins onto the pitch at Burnley is really reckless, particularly if you don’t want to end up owning the club.”

Mike Garlick is said to be thrilled to have got as much as a quid back for his investment.
