You Couldn’t Make It Up!

I first saw this story back in the summer, and it has stuck with me ever since, and so I thought I would share it!

A Real Own Goal!

A council in the North of England opened itself up to ridicule by building a fence straight through the middle of a set of goalposts. The fence is part of a boundary around a new children’s playground that has been installed in the park by York council.

The gaff led to confusion and a certain amount of amusement from locals who use the park. However, counsellors said that it was a deliberate action, as the posts were to be replaced to face in the opposite direction.

Brings a whole new meaning to playing in defence!

Original story from BBC website.


About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
