ELON Musk has been urged to invest in a county amateur football club after the billionaire's SpaceX company appeared to feature the same logo as the club.

The SpaceX logo was revealed on social media yesterday (Thursday) and Haddington Town FC were quick to highlight the similarities.

SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft.

Ryan Leishman, who is involved with the amateur football side, told the Courier they had received messages from the opposite side of the world highlighting the similarities between the club's badge and the SpaceX logo.

Both feature a similar style of drawing of a goat.

The animal has featured on the coat of arms granted to the Royal Burgh in Haddington for several centuries.

Ryan described the situation as "a bit mental" and had not ruled out Musk, who is the founder, chairman and CEO of SpaceX, as well as the owner of X Corp, the successor to Twitter, forming an official link with Haddington Town.

He said: "Who would have thought two American actors (Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney) would decide to take an interest in Wrexham?

"This is not quite the same but still!"

The amateur football side, who play in the Lothian and Edinburgh Amateur Football Association (LEAFA) Sunday Morning Premier Division, are back in action next weekend when they face Broomhall at Queensferry High School.

Ryan, who has been involved with the club since the first training session, said: "Elon has not been in touch but if we wants to join in, invest some money for strips, he is welcome.

"In exchange, we will back him when he fights Mark Zuckerberg [co-founder of Facebook]!"

The goat has been used in the badge for a number of other clubs in the town, including Haddington Running Club and Haddington Cricket Club.

It is not the first time an amateur football side from East Lothian has made headlines for its potential connection with a celebrity.

Twelve months ago, Uri Geller adopted North Berwick AFC as the national side of his newly proclaimed micronation on the Lamb.

The Israeli illusionist purchased the island in 2009 for £30,000, with the belief it held a mystical connection with ancient Egypt and hidden buried treasure.
