Dung-ho of­fi­cial causes cow pat spat

Daily Record - - NEWS - BLAIR MEIKLE re­porters@dai­

A foot­bAll of­fi­cial is in deep doo-doo – af­ter send­ing a box of cow dung to play­ers from a ri­val team.

Ste­wart Keith, a for­mer com­mit­tee mem­ber of Pee­bles Rovers, sent the pack­age fol­low­ing a row with two play­ers from fife side Kelty Hearts last month.

Neil Hob­son, a spokesman for the bor­ders out­fit, con­firmed Keith had sent the box, which con­tained nails as well as the cow pat.

He said: “there was an in­ci­dent at the Kelty match where he got into a spat with two of the play­ers but I can’t tell you any more.”

Mal­colm McGill, Pee­bles Rovers’ match sec­re­tary, also con­firmed the in­ci­dent, say­ing: “Some­one from Kelty phoned me and knew it was Ste­wart. So he maybe put his name to it.”

Keith, who re­signed from the club two weeks ago, said: “It’s a pri­vate mat­ter. It has noth­ing to do with my res­ig­na­tion.”

Kelty re­fused to com­ment.
