Droylsden played Chorley in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League today. During the game, as his side were 10-1 down and his bets had failed him in the Grand National, the Droylsden social media guy tweeted asking "could this day get any worse?! Anyone had a worse day?"
My horse failed in the national, and now we are 10-1 down, could this day get any worse?! Anyone had a worse day?

One of the replies he received was from his Chorley counterpart, who was having a much better day.
@Droylsden_FC My horses come 2nd and 3rd and we're 10-1 up, this is the greatest day of my life!

And the day did get worse for him.
13-1 is the heaviest defeat that @Droylsden_FC have ever suffered in their 125 year history. #thisisalow
