Hyde FC Devise Ingenious Method Of Keeping Names Of Trialists Under Wraps

By Chris Wright


Hyde FC’s Ewen Fields home ground in all its glory

Unwilling to name their proper line-up for a recent pre-season friendly for fear of advertising their various trialists to other potentially interested parties, Conference North side Hyde FC came up with an ingenious solution to the problem.

Instead of revealing their trailist players’ identities, Hyde’s Twitter account simply subbed in the names of left-wing revolutionaries and politicians, meaning Fidel Castro, Karl Marx and Leon Trotsky all started while Mahatma Ghandi, Che Guevara and Tony Blair all had to make do with a place on the bench…

The left-wing puns then came thick and fast as the club’s official Twitter account live-Tweeted the game in its entirety…

The game then went to penalties…


Now that’s how you live-Tweet a football match!
