AN urgent appeal has been launched by three Waterford men, who have found themselves ‘struggling for numbers’ ahead of this Friday’s must-attend Astroturf 5-a-side kickaround and drinking session.
The call went out on Twitter yesterday evening as Derek Wilson, Paul Canning and Sean Hanlon issued tweets from their personal accounts urging anyone with information about two more lads who had nothing to do on Friday in the Tramore area to come forward for an hour of football, with pints in the nearest pub immediately afterwards.
Fearing the worst for their weekend, the trio pleaded with the public to ‘retweet this until someone is found’, with growing concerns that the weekly kickabout may have to be called off, leading to a night in with their wives watching some shite on TV.
“We’re looking for two lads, any age, and level of footballing ability” read the emotional post on Canning’s social media feeds.
“Somebody, somewhere must know something that can lead to us finding these much-needed players. We can field a team with four lads if we need to, but we’d really love if we had two as the other side usually bring this big Polish lad that they work with and we’ve no chance against them if the numbers don’t level up. Please RT. Think about what you would do if it was your pals, and your drinking session”.
If you know anyone in the area that has a pair of runners and a functioning liver, please contact canningball at gmail.com.
