Villarreal to wear shirts with their maternal names on for Mother's Day

First off, don't panic, Mother's Day is on a different date in Spain - so you've not forgotten. The Spanish celebrate the occasion this Sunday, May 6th, and in what is quite a sweet gesture they'll be wearing their squad shirts with their maternal names on for their match tomorrow against Valencia.

It's to mark the contribution their mother's have made to their careers and life, a very public thank you for the support shown to them throughout their lives. 

It's backed by their sponsor, beer company Mahou, but we can't find any mention of mums getting free booze - so that's somewhere they can improve.

Fans are being encouraged to get involved and the soppy lot have set up a hashtag #madres5estrellas so that Villarreal fans can share appreciation of their mums.

Can't recall anything like this happening in England, perhaps it's something a club could try next year.
