AUTOGRAPH hunters were keen to grab an ex-Premier League striker’s signature in Spalding on Friday.

Andy Cole - who played for England and was worshipped at Manchester United and Newcastle United – was the star attraction at the official unveiling of a refurbishment of the Late Shopper in Holbeach Road.

An onlooker said: “There was a steady stream of people bringing T-shirts and books to sign.”

Cole, who won the Champions League with the Red Devils, said: “It was great to officially open the Late Shopper store and I’m sure the customers will enjoy all the improvements that have been made.”
