Billy the Goldfish – Gone but not forgotten

Written by Dave Mercer on September 14, 2010

We have posted recently about the passing of several great Carp in Britain.  This time it was Billy the goldfish, the lucky mascot of the Carlisle United Football Club who has passed on.

5 years ago Billy was found swimming around the goalmouth after severe flooding in the area.  The team has had a great run of success with Billy as their lucky mascot.  Carlisle United is planning on getting new fish and any team with fish for mascots is OK in our books!  RIP Billy
