The Spoiler hasn't felt this sorry for a linesperson since Sian Massey's career was stalled thanks to a couple of old sexists and those well-meaning tabloids with their lovely headlines and ability to get pictures off Facebook.

Anyway, It may have happened a few weeks ago now, but it's just come to our attention that when Blyth Spartans played Droylsden, there was a MASSIVE handball on the line from Droylsden player Ciaran Kilheeney but the referee and his assistant somehow didn't see it.

EVERYONE from Blyth then goes mental at the referee and his terrified linesman, before Kilheeney goes on to rub boiling acid into the gaping wound by scoring a late equaliser. Gutted.
