‘Please stop bumming us Ferguson,’ say Everton Ball Boys


Everton’s Ball Boys have asked that temporary manager, Duncan Ferguson’s goal celebrations could include less bumming for them.

Ball boy, Peter Thape has had to start wearing a chastity belt for all home games, in case Ferguson picks him out for a goal celebration.

Thape told Cutting News that less and less of the ball boys were prepared to help retrieve the ball on the manager’s side of the pitch.

‘My belt’s started to chafe on me, and can be quite uncomfortable,’ said ball boy, Thape.

‘A kiss with tongues, maybe; but he’s going too far,’ he added.
