Finger football spoof after club in highlights pay row
MACCLESFIELD Town created their own tongue-in-cheek match highlights after being asked to pay for footage of their 0-0 draw with Boreham Wood.
The Silkmen usually show their match highlights on their website, but were unimpressed by demands to fork out for a video of Vanarama National League game.
Instead they posted a video of 40-second match with fingers for players on a cardboard pitch, complete with crowd noise.
As with the real game, which was watched by 306 people at Boreham’s ground at Meadow Park, very little happens.
The club posted a video on its YouTube channel which begins: “The following is a dramatic reconstruction of Boreham Wood vs. Macclesfield Town.
We were told we would have to pay for use of video footage for highlights packages, so this reconstruction will help tell the story of the game.”
The ‘highlights’ has been watched by 11,000
