Proofreading error of the year

Visit The Oak pub in Widmore Road, Bromley, and you will see a calendar hanging over the bar, already turned to September 2011. It depicts a scene of cheering football fans with a caption that should read:

Jamie Muir
Scunthorpe United No. 1 Fan

Guess which letter was accidentally cropped off the image?

The personalised calendar cost £12.99 from Gosport, and was a Christmas gift to the landlord, Jamie Muir, from his mum.

A spokesman from the club said: “It was not our fault.”

Stickers have been provided to the 2,000 fans who received the calendar, to stick over the error.

Top tip: get it write!
