Baldock Town of the South Midlands League played North Greenford United of the Combined Counties League in the preliminary rounds of the FA Cup of Sunday afternoon.

Fans of the home side unable to attend the big match were invited to follow their side’s fortunes on social media, courtesy of regular live updates being emitted via Baldock Town’s official Twitter account.

However, shortly after Town had gone 3-1 up in the second half, the live updates suddenly ceased without warning.

Indeed, it was only the following day that the club’s social correspondent, Liam Kenna, informed confused fans as to why…

That’s right. It emerged that McKenna had been asked to pull a double-shift on matchday, live-tweeting the action up until the 78th minute before coming on as a late impact sub.

After the hilarious explanation went viral, one fan contacted Baldock directly to ask how McKenna performed in the latter stages.

Of course, the club’s Twitter account duly gave their sub a glowing review…

Well he would say that, wouldn’t he?
