AND FINALLY . . .
Groundsman accused of bringing VAR lines to life
Pictures from Abingdon Town FC grabbed attention on social media last week.
In images shared by opponents Burnham FC, it was observed that the pitchside line was somewhat less than straight.
As the Evening Standard pointed out, comparisons were quickly made to the VAR lines televised by BT Sport during the recent FA Cup encounter between Manchester United and Huddersfield Town, when the new virtual referring system was widely ridiculed.
Replying to Burnham FC’s tweet, Erika Robinson joked “did he do the VAR lines the other week too?” while Gareth Belcher told a friend to “have a few of those pints next Friday”
