Boston United alphabet shortage
United are running short of the letter 'L', impsTALK can exclusively
reveal in today's Monday breaking news breaking exclusive update.
letter - an abbreviation for 'lost' - is in short supply thanks
to the Pilgrims' wretched form this season. The
letter is used to mark a defeat on the club's official website -
and so many have been used during 2006/2007 that the club has completely
problem emerged when United were updating their website following
the weekend's loss at home to Hartlepool. Press officer Craig Singleton
entered another L beside the Boston v Hartlepool game - and realised
he had used the last remaining letter.
One witness, important Boston fan Bob Mugfret-Fishhead, was present
when the shocking discovery was made.
"I showed up at the ground to buy my early bird ticket for
MK Dons," the important fan said. "Craig was rummaging
around the drawers in a state of panic asking if anyone had seen
the spare box of Ls he thought he had.
"He kept saying he thought he'd seen one at the back of the
drawers with all the brown envelopes in, but he wasn't sure."
According to Mugfret-Fishhead, a row then erupted between club secretary
John Blackwell and Singleton after Blackwell accused the young press
officer of 'messing up his drawers'.
"I haven't seen your bloody Ls anywhere!' Blackwell is alleged
to have shouted. "Put those Conference application forms away
as well! I might need them next season."
