An English Club Yesterday Gave Us One Of The Most Gloriously Non-League Moments Of All Time

An English Club Yesterday Gave Us One Of The Most Gloriously Non-League Moments Of All Time
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Sleaford Town -in the unlikely event you don't know - are a club from Lincolnshire who play in the United Counties League Premier Division. Yesterday afternoon, they were playing Boston Town FC, a fellow non-league club fortunate enough to be unconnected with the Dropkick Murphys. Sleaford fans following the game on the club's twitter account had their updates interrupted in the second half. Sleaford were leading 3-0 at half-time.

The reason the updates stalled are more deserving of the use of 'non-league' as an adjective than most things:

Magnificent. The updates then resumed into the second half, meaning the man behind the twitter account either suffered the indignity of being subbed off, or else continued to tweet while playing. Given the final result, we assume the latter:

The whole incident sent us into the realm of speculation: if the twitter accounts of Premier League clubs were run by players, what would it be like?

Naturally, Liverpool's would be run by Instagram's Jose Enrique, but who would run Aston Villa's? It is unlikely to be Joleon Lescott, given that he accidentally tweeted a picture of his expensive car after a 6-0 defeat to Liverpool rather than, say, an image of a Nissan Micra. Villa might give it to Jack Grealish: he isn't that busy at the moment, and we might see the return of the shamrock emoji if Grealish can take refuge behind a different account.
