If any one Tweet could be used to sum up the true essence of non-league football, it may well have been emitted during yesterday’s United Counties League Premier Division clash between Sleaford United and Boston Town.

As always, the game was being live-Tweeted by Sleaford’s official account, with the man in charge putting out the usual information: starting line-ups, chances, goal updates, etc…

It all went swimmingly up until half-time, with the home side 3-0 up cruising by the break…

However, Boston quickly pulled one back and then the whole operation began to fall apart…

Indeed, directly after Boston’s goal, the Sleaford live-Tweeting feed fell deathly quiet.

Then, roughly an hour or so later, the whole thing came whirring back into life with an explanation for the radio silence…

Oh, non-league football. Don’t ever change.
