Michael Owen was given an unwelcome send-off by his Stoke team-mates ahead of his final home game before retirement.

He posted a picture on Twitter of his black Mercedes C63 covered in eggs and flour and wrote

While Owen was commiserating the desecration of his car, Stoke were preparing to celebrate their 150th birthday.
A message on their website informed fans that festivities would get 'into full swing' at midday.

More than 80 former Stoke players will be paraded around the stadium and the crowd will be entertained by jugglers, ball wizards, stilt walkers, clowns and face painters.

There will also be a performance from the Co-operative Funeralcare Brass Band North West.

Chief Executive Tony Scholes said: 'This will be a fantastic celebration of our 150 years and we want everyone to come along and join the party.
'The important thing is that people should arrive early if they want to enjoy all the entertainment that will be taking place both inside and outside of the stadium.

'The presence of so many of our former players has created an enormous amount of interest among supporters who will need to be inside the stadium for 12.15pm to see the start of the parade which will take place in the countdown to the kick-off.'
