A football team has turned the tables on abusive fans, as they booed a section of their home support at the final whistle.
Siddrington Town, who play in the 15673rd tier of English football, turned on their support at the end of a dismal 0-0 draw with Gretterfield Hamlet Reserves in the Ottingly and Chaps Travellator Cup.
Striker, Joe Goals, who missed several chances throughout the match, said:
"They had it coming. They’ve been shit for months now, and something just snapped today. We had three big opportunities from set pieces, and they couldn’t even rustle up a response. We bust our guts out every week, and they just can’t be fucked to even give me an “unlucky Joe” if I miss a chance."
Siddrington Town sit 14th in the Tipping and Forsham Regional League Division four, and had planned to build a new stand for supporters to enjoy their higher-tier football after the side were promoted last season. Given the growing rift between players and fans, that now seems unlikely.
Goalkeeper, Harold Save, said:
"The players have been fantastic for years, and this is the thanks we get when we go through a bit of a sticky patch. It’s just not worth it."
Several of the Siddrington midfield were arrested post-match after attacking supporters' cars as they came out of the car park.
Siddrington chairman, Gareth Danger, condemned the violent incidents but conceded:
"It’s a passionate game, and sometimes tensions do boil over. We will try and defuse the flashpoints between the players and fans, but some of the boys are already admitting privately that they won’t be back for the next home game. I don’t blame 'em. These fans are wankers."
