Local Team In Match Fixing Scandal ?
On the opening day of the season home town team Wheatley AFC let in so many goals that their poor keeper had to have a doctor's appointment after his RSI back injury flared up again when repeatedly picking the ball out of the back of the net.
The next week's match was cancelled as no referee could be found, and the same mysterious occurrence caused the cancellation of the match the week following that as well.
Yorkshire Soul can now reveal the scandal behind the refereeing mystery. Referee Dick Typhlotic has made the sensational claim that a mysterious man lurking in his garden offered him a '2 for 1 at Harry Ramsdens' voucher in order to cancel the first game. The week following, referee Nullius Filius Atramentous made similar claims that a lurking man offered him 4 cans of Tesco Value Baked Beans to drop the game.
How long can this go on, who is this mysterious 'Lurker' and how long can he keep forcing the cancellation of games in order to stop Wheatley AFC getting a mauling ? We think the public should be told.
