Macclesfield Town’s kit launch was thrown in to disarray tonight, after diehard fan Andy Worth revealed his mannequin fetish.
After announcing that the kit would be launched within the next five or ten minutes, excitement got the better of him as he proceeded to jump on the back of the covered mannequins – which literally smashed their poor fragile bodies to bits.
It has been well known for a number of years now that Mr Worth is always eager to converse with the players, and it was rumoured for some considerable time that he planned to adopt former Silkmen favourite Matty Hamshaw.
However, this latest over exuberance really did set new limits, and as fans flocked to repair the damage, Andy took himself in to the toilets to reflect on his actions.
We asked Mr Worth for comment after the launch, yet this offer was revoked. It is hoped that we will be able to bring you a full apology from the legendary PA later in the week.
In the meantime, we have informed Next, River Island and Burtons of the threat that Andy poses to their displays, and we expect that relevant banning orders will be imposed as a matter of urgency.
