A Blyth Spartans replica shirt that travelled to Cambodia ended up helping a Chilean couple see a historic landmark.

Last month the top came to the rescue of a young couple from Chile whose holiday highlight was under threat.

In the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia, the couple were about to enter the inner religious sanctum only to be turned away as women have to have their shoulders covered.

Fortunately for them, Blyth fan Anna Wilkie was in the same queue and overheard the couple’s concerns as they had travelled across the world to visit the historic venue.

She happened to be carrying a Spartans shirt with her to get a photo for the club website’s ‘Spartans Abroad’ feature, and offered it to the young woman to borrow.

She and her partner had not heard of Blyth Spartans but promised to follow them.
