Morpeth Tandoori owner Abdul Muhit is selling a special curry in honour of his beloved club, and the profits will be donated to The Highwaymen.

An Indian restaurant owner has cooked up a special curry to celebrate Morpeth Town’s historic Wembley win.

The Highwaymen lifted the FA Vase in May after coming from behind to beat Hereford FC 4-1 in the final.

And to commemorate the victory, Morpeth Tandoori owner Abdul Muhit has created a curry in honour of his beloved club.

The bengol Ronaldo beef dish - cheekily named after Hereford’s prize-winning bull mascot - will be sold at his restaurant throughout June.

Some of the profits made from the meal, priced at £7.95, will be donated to The Highwaymen.

Mr Muhit was among the 3,500 town fans who made the long trip down to the capital for the final.

He said: “It was a fantastic day and everyone in the town seemed to go and support the team.

“I was so happy after the match and decided I wanted to do something for the club.

“It is a credit to the chairman Ken Beattie, and the team, for doing something special for Morpeth.”

The dish includes coriander, barley and peppers, as well as an array of spices.

And Mr Muhit said he has already received good feedback from his punters.

He said: “People really like it so I hope it can raise some money for the club.

“The chairman and players can come down to try it anytime they like.”

In the days leading up to the match, the town was awash with yellow and black in homage of the club’s colours.

Traders decorated their windows with bunting, replica kits and balloons in support of the team.

Mr Muhit also erected a giant sign outside Morpeth Court wishing the players good luck ahead of the match.

Hundreds of fans turned out to welcome the Wembley heroes home just days after their win over Hereford.

And on Sunday, the team will parade the trophy on an open-top bus through the town centre.

Thousands of fans are expected to line the streets to greet the players as they show off the cup.

The Mayor of Morpeth, councillor Andrew Tebbutt, will then hold a civic reception for the team.
