Following the farcical progress of the FA Cup tie between Droylsden, a dull Greater Manchester suburb, and Chesterfield, a dull Derbyshire town with a wonky church spire, Spoof writer Monkey Woods today announced that he had obtained sole marketing rights to the name of Droylsden.
'This is my story,' Woods said this afternoon. 'It's mine, all mine. There's a mine of comic potential here for the right innovator.'
Droylsden, a team with an allegedly dodgy backstory were eliminated from the FA Cup today because they fielded an ineligable player.
'This kind of thing is ratings gold dust,' quipped an ebullient Monkey Woods. 'So I don't want to see any more Droylsden stories.
Looks like another good day for the monkey.
More as we get it.
