A Non-League manager has called out a rival player who bullied a supporter for wearing a signed shirt.

Bromsgrove Sporting manager Paul Smith posted footage of the incident on Social media during the last week saying that the look on the victims face breaks him.

But it turns out that the bully is a player for rivals Littleton FC.

He asked the supporter, Jay Randle ‘how many of the players had signed his shirt.’ To which the supporter replied all of them.

The bully then continues: ‘You’re a f*****g loser man, why would you do that.’

It has led to the Sporting manager along with players of the club, who reached the semi-finals of the FA Vase this season as well winning the Midlands Division One, supporting the Randle across social media denouncing the comments from Randle.

Smith tweeted that he would be picking up the fan before their game yesterday and taking him for a drink after the match, while defender Aaron Roberts said he would buy the beers.

Meanwhile, Midfielder John Pykett said: “Proud to have you as one of the supports (sic) of Sporting FC. We all know who the real loser is.’

Littleton tweet on Saturday saying that ‘Littleton Football club would like to stress that we only log onto this account on matchdays.’

Before adding:‘In light of recent events the club would like to stress that the matter has been dealt with internally and no further comment will be made.’
