Wally Town's twitter account deals with 11-0 defeat in the best way

Wallingford Town show the way to react to a heavy defeat with some strong twitter work

Wednesday night was one to forget for Wallingford Town who suffered a heavy 11-0 defeat at Highworth Town in the Floodlit Cup.

Already well know for it’s double decker bus bar at the Hithercroft ground, the Hellenic League Division 1 East side have added ‘twitter banter’ (which if you’ve seen our own tweets you’ll know isn’t as easy as you’d think) to their list of accolades.

Let’s bring in some context: Until the weekend when they lost to Wantage Town, Highworth had won all 13 previous Hellenic Premier Division games scoring 53 goals at an average of 3.78 per game. Wallingford themselves are no slouches, sitting fourth in their first season back in the Division 1 East winning five and drawing three of their 11 league games so far.

It’s obviously a heavy defeat though for Wally Town who will understandably be a bit low this morning and need to lift themselves for Saturday’s trip to Thame Rangers. Thankfully though the clubs twitter account won a few new fans, using the 90 minutes to raise the clubs profile with a series of darkly humorous tweets which were well received on social media.

It didn’t start too well..

Lovely bit of optimism

And some more

Every cloud..

Call it off ref!

It was going so well until this point

The full time whistle

And just to rub it in..

They did earn a few fans though

Don’t think this fella got it though..
