ROVERS legend Alan Shearer made a beeline for East Lancashire when he signed on to provide FA Cup final punditry.

The 48-year-old headed to Scruples, in Barrowford, for a custom-made three-piece suit after securing the BBC gig.

Shearer is a regular fixture at the Gisburn Road store and opted for Italian-made Mancini attire for the assignment.

He said: "I always receive a warm welcome every time I visit the store.

"The personal touch, customer care and quality of the suits are all brilliant.

"The owner, Stephen Collins, and his team know exactly what I'm after and what styles suit me best."

Five weeks will be set aside for the tailoring, ahead of the May 18 final.

Jan Dickinson, Scruples' co-owner, added: "Alan has been coming to us for a number of years now.

"He’s a great guy and we love seeing Alan wearing our brand on TV.

"Alan seemed really pleased with the suit and we are delighted that he has come back to us."

The all-time leading Premier League goalscorer is not the only fan of Mancini around these parts.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has also been seen wearing the label on matchdays.
