Here’s why Finchampstead’s first team players are being pictured with an emoji

The ‘worst trainer’ forfeit isn’t new to football teams – particularly in pre season, but Finchampstead’s first team players have taken things to a new level.

Our recent focus on Finch has uncovered their own poor trainer award which involves sharing a photograph on social media with stuffed crying with laughter emoji.

So far the forfeit – devised by captain Adam Barnard and Sam Green – has seen James Pople and Freddie Barron (above) pictured with the emoji on a building site and a warehouse.

We look forward to the @FinchFirsts1 twitter account keeping us up to date with these emoji sitings, we’ll certainly be updating this page with them each week.

In the meantime..

  1. […] On paper at the least, Laugharne has a squad at his disposal that could break into the top half of the table this time out and the Finch boss lauded his committed squad of players that includes long-serving captain Adam Barnard, top scorer Greg Alexander and the experienced former Binfield centre-back Gary Callaway.
