'Golden goal girl' backed by fans
Britannia Stadium
Some fans objected to the wolf whistles aimed at Charlotte Marsh
A teenager who holds a board showing the time of each goal at Stoke City Football Club has kept her job after supporters gave her their backing.

"Golden goal girl" Charlotte Marsh, 19, was dropped two weeks ago, after complaints that the reaction of some supporters to her displays was sexist.

She received wolf whistles during her appearances at the Britannia Stadium.

Fans held up red or white cards at Tuesday's game with Ipswich, to show if they wanted her to stay or go.

More white cards than red were waved, meaning Ms Marsh can keep her job.

Supporters who buy scratch cards win a prize if the time on the ticket matches the time shown on her board.
