A local football ground announcer on Thursday was pranked by three kids during the English fifth-tier football club AFC Clyde’s fixture on Wednesday. The three season ticket holders of the football club Jak, Tom and Timo, visited the announcer’s box during the overnight match and passed a note to stand-in announcer Liam Brown.

“My dad’s (car is) blocked in, would it be OK to read this out?” the kids asked the announcer and passed him a note with the car name and number plate “White Nissan Micra NE 14 ABJ”.

Without realising, the announcer called out to thousands in attendance “NE14 ABJ”, and then later realised what he has just said. He then said to the crowd, “I’ve been well and truly had”.

The kids quickly returned back to their seats giggling and were heard saying, “he actually said it!”

The kids were identified by the football club and were rewarded for their hilarious stint with free club shirts. “It was a great bit of harmless fun that snuck through, and it put a smile on the face of tens of thousands of people today,” AFC Fylde chairman David Haythornthwaite told his club’s website.

“The least we could do was return the favour and kit them out with our home strip and a goodie bag,” he added.

“Hopefully this will be a memory that’ll stay with them forever as supporters!” he further said.
