Palace fan who launched Twitter appeal after falling for girl on a train says a date may be on the cards

ROMANCE may be on the way for the Crystal Palace fan who took to Twitter to find a girl he "fell in love" with on the train.

Angus Mainland, 19, tweeted rail company Cross Country Trains on Saturday asking for help to find a girl he had taken a selfie with, after he'd forgotten to get her name or number on the way to Palace's 3-2 win against Southampton.

His message has attracted nearly 5,000 retweets and last night he revealed the girl had been found.

Angus today told the Advertiser that the mystery girl, from the Bournemouth area, had taken the internet attention well, and the pair had exchanged numbers.

"I just sent her a message, said I'm assuming you've seen all the stuff that's been going on and asked her if she was okay with it all.

"She found it quite funny, and then I said 'here's my number, let me know if you'd like to go for a drink'.

"She said she would, but nothing's been set in stone yet. There's potential for a drink, but I don't know exactly what's going to happen."

Angus, a lifelong Palace fan who is now in university in Bournemouth, didn't seem to think the online attention would damage his chances.

"I think she found it all quite funny to be honest," he said. "I don't think the attention has damaged my chances, she's not taken it badly at all."

She was found after one of his friends had spotted her name being mentioned on Twitter after his message went viral.

But for another of Angus' friends is set to fare rather worse from the whole affair - after betting the tweet would not get more than 2,000 retweets.

The forfeit for the poor Southampton-supporting lad will be to get a tattoo commemorating Palace goalscorers Yaya Sanogo and Marouane Chamakh.

Angus was adamant the tattooing will go ahead.

"That's definitely happening," he said. "We're looking at getting it done on Saturday after we've played football.

"On his bum he's getting 'I was there when Chamakh and Sanogo scored', and the date of when it happened."

Angus' brief internet fame also yielded a bonus in the form of a message from one of his heros - Eagles' legend Mark Bright.

"To be honest, it was really surprising and I'm still getting loads of my mates phoning me up saying 'you're in this paper', and so on," said Angus.

"I even saw a segment from Australian news that I was on. It's gone really really mad."
