The world’s first ever lamb football matches on a farm in Newtimber correctly predicted the results of two of last week’s Easter fixtures.

They rightfully saw Liverpool and Everton as winners, but they missed out on a clean sweep after wrongly foreseeing a win for Chelsea over Sunderland.

The first clash of the lambs saw the Blues on top form, with Dembaa Baa leading his players to the back of the net with ease.

Norwich City and Liverpool were up next, in a match that saw Ricky Van Woolswinkel and Steven Gerraaard expertly dominate the match, but the sheer determination of the Anfield side paid off in the end.

The final match saw a close shave between Everton and Manchester United, with the Lambchester Ewenited lambs, as they were dubbed, sheepish in defeat following a last minute surge down the pitch from the Toffees.

The lambs were kitted out in miniature hand-made strips and guided by sheepdog managers, with the winning team for each match decided by the first to get all players across the goal line and into the back of the net.

The matches were used to predict the outcome of Premier League games over Easter, and Sky Sports’ Chris Kamara reported on all the action live ‘meadow-side’ for NOW TV.

He said: “I know I’m famous for saying ‘unbelievable, Jeff’, but I really don’t know how else to describe what I saw today, I suppose I could say it was a game of ewe halves?

“Fans have a lot to look forward to this Easter weekend if it’s even half as entertaining as what I’ve just witnessed.”

All captured on ‘lamb-cam’, the teams battled it out in a series of dramatic face-offs.
