James Collette, from Croft Lane, Chipperfield, popped the question to girlfriend Lucy Sargison, during Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games where the pair had been watching the Rugby Sevens.

Half way through the event on Saturday 26 July, the organisers called James and Lucy on to the field under the pretence that they had been randomly selected from the audience to take part in a Commonwealth quiz. Once on the pitch James was handed a microphone and made his surprise proposal with his girlfriend immediately replying, “yes”, to cheers from the 47,000 strong crowd.

Lucy, who is in the Army and recently completed an eight-month tour of Afghanistan, said; “I was completely shocked. I had no idea and it was just amazing. I said “yes” straight away.” James added, “This has been the most exciting time in my life. Lucy and I met two years ago. We have been through a lot together, all of which has made our relationship stronger. She means everything to me.”

The couple plan to marry in Chipperfield during the summer of 2015.
