Scooter Rally at Cleethorpes. Part 3, "Tears of a Clown" Gazza's Story.

This scooter depicts the England footballer Paul Gascoigne ("Gazza").  At the semi-final game of the FIFA Football World in 1990, he was deemed to have committed a foul and was awarded a yellow card.  He realised that, if England won through to the Final, he wouldn't be allowed to play in it as the rules meant he had to miss the next game.  He became emotional and had to be consoled by his team mates.  

However, England were beaten in that semi-final game and didn't reach the final.
