Non-League Club Unhappy With Player's Decision To Join Love Island Villa

Non-League Club Unhappy With Player's Decision To Join Love Island Villa
By Eoin Harrington

It's impossible to avoid Love Island these days, with the show occupying a stranglehold over our Twitter feeds, whether we watch it or not. Its reach has stretched as far as the football world with the "bombshell" news that Halifax Town forward Jamie Allen will be joining the villa this week.

Only last month, the club happily announced Allen had extended his contract at the club, prompting an excited reaction from fans. We imagine he has burned away some of that goodwill with the club now.

He is not the first footballer to make an appearance on the show. Last year, former Waterford FC  player Aaron Simpson joined the crew at Casa Amor late in the show's run.

It will be intriguing to see how Allen gets on in the cut throat environment of the Love Island villa - and perhaps even more intriguing to see what kind of reception he receives on his return to Halifax.
