Ebbsfleet United have done a fine thing to satisfy the internet – and make money for charity

Fleet defender Yado Mambo will finally be synched with Lou Bega's 1999 pop classic – and all for a great cause

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Ebbsfleet played Leyton Orient on national TV at the weekend, which drew attention to a niggling concern – Mambo, their defender since 2016, 'only' wearing the No.18 shirt. 

Although the club refused to make an official number switch amid pressure on social media, the National League side have produced a special one-off replica No.5 shirt adorned with Yado's surname to be auctioned for charity on eBay. Proceeds go to Prostate Cancer UK.

Bidding (at the time of writing) currently stands at £420 (Lou, we know it's you). 

"We have caved in. Well, sort of," read an official club statement.

"Alas, the No.5 currently belongs to our skipper Dave Winfield and he's a pretty big chap. Try as we might to wrestle it out of his hands, it would take braver men than us to do that.

"So, how can we give the nation what it desires and do some good at the same time?

"We are auctioning off, via eBay, an exclusive Mambo No.5 home shirt (size XL). So please, spread the news far and wide on social media."
