Boston United tattoo for non-league supporting Deputy Chief Medical Officer

Professor Jonathan Van-Tam told Piers Morgan that, when Britain finally defeated Covid, he’d get a Boston United tattoo. The Boston-born scientist known as ‘JVT’ announced on Good Morning Britain that he’d get a ‘BUFC’ on his ‘left deltoid,’ with medical precision. 

As a leading expert in respiratory illnesses, JVT became a familiar face in press conferences and interviews following the COVID-19 outbreak. Eagle-eyed fans realised where his heart lay when they noticed his Boston United tie, and his Pilgrims match program behind him in his Lincolnshire home. 

However, the tattoo revelation elevated JVT to new heights of respect and adulation among Boston United fans and staff alike. Boston local Janice Flynn-James immediately started a Facebook page campaigning for the club to name a stand after him at the Jakeman’s Community Stadium. The group's hundreds of members have already earned recognition and support on Lincs FM.

The Boston United Club Secretary, Craig Singleton, also expressed his appreciation for Van-Tam’s work. In an interview for ITV, Singleton offered the professor the opportunity to be a Boston mascot once the restrictions ease.

Professor Van-Tam told Piers Morgan that Boston United are a ‘massive club,’ and the National League North table backs up his statement. Before the league voted to null and void its 19/20 competition, The Pilgrims were 6th in the league with five games in hand. The same COVID crisis that saw JVT rise to fame also blocked his beloved BUFC from a solid promotion chance.

However, while pandemics are temporary, football support, like tattoos, are for life. By the time Van-Tam inks his ‘left deltoid,’ BUFC, like the rest of the country, will be back on the right track.
