Facebook is a bit confused about Andy Townsend’s new job

That's not even the right sport

There’s been a gaping chasm in the football world since Andy Townsend called time on his distinguished pundit career with ITV last year.

Thankfully, he’s made his eagerly awaited return, taking up a consultancy role at soon-to-be League One club, Bolton Wanderers.

Narrowly bumped from the front pages by the untimely passing of iconic music legend Prince, Townsend’s name still managed to trend on Facebook, alongside the name of his new club.

Unfortunately for the Maidstone-born Irishman, it seems whoever Mr. Zuckerberg asked to add a bit more detail to the story got in a bit of a muddle, announcing that Townsend had actually just bagged himself a role at Boston Wanderers.


Incidentally, ‘Boston Wanderers’ do exist, but their website appears to be something to do with golf.
