Breaking news from Parklea today as it appears Thomas O’Ware might be getting a hefty fine from management after a training ground prank left French goalkeeper Nicolas Caraux needing hospital treatment for 2nd degree burns.
In these pictures, retweeted by Derek Gaston, it appears O’Ware told Caraux his French shinpads were now illegal and he would have to put two Costa coffee receptacles down his socks. Due a translation error Caraux tried to do this while both were filled with white hot macchiatos.
“You may be finding this strange” whistled Caraux “but in France, at youth level, we always must play with food stuffs in our person. I kept goal from Lens youth for three years with a ring of onions round our neck and, famously, Jean Pierre-Papin played until his mid 20s with a frog perched on his head until it was squished scoring a header v Borussia Dortmund in the Cup Winners’ Cup”
Caraux did want to see O’Ware judged too harshly for his fault in the prank explaining “To go to the authorities would be giving up. We French never surrender. I’m gonna wait til he falls asleep and cover his balls with sherbert and release wasps into his bedroom.”
Jim Duffy was unavailable for comment as he was in Tibet on a scouting trip trying to sign The Yeti to fulfill Greenock Morton’s facial hair quota which was been on the slide since Rowan Vine left.
