Our favourite story from last weekend â€“ and one I’ve been meaning to post all week â€“ has to be the tale of the teenage twins hired to provide halftime entertainment at Hillsborough during Sheffield Wednesday against Barnsley.
Francine and Nicola Gleadall, from Sheffield, made obscene gestures and
swore at Barnsley supporters after performing their debut
single â€“ a cover of Slade’s ‘Cum on Feel the Noize’
â€“ at halftime.
The 18-year-old twins (their band is called TWIN,
btw â€“ genius) then spent two hours
at a police station and were each fined 60 quid. A spokesman for the
singers said they had been ‘intimidated’ after being jeered by a
section of Barnsley fans. The incident prompted Sheffield Wednesday to
statement ‘apologising unreservedly’ for any offence caused.
An eyewitness told The Mirror: ‘Nic told the Barnsley supporters to "fuck off" and put up the V sign. They went wild, which caused the
Wednesday fans to taunt them even more.’ Brilliant. Enjoy your 15 minutes girls.
