Brighton & Hove Albion to trial letters instead of numbers on players shirts

Brighton and Hove Albion are to revert to letters on shirts instead of numbers on the back. So as to make their players more identifiable from a distance in the Premier League

David Stockdake for instance will wear a big S on the front of his shirt. And Glenn Murray a big M. That will also form part of the Amex.

Solly March will wear Ma instead. And Sam Baldock, Bruno and Gaetan Bong will draw lots before each match.

A club spokesman confirmed the club will announce the change at midday today and said: “Any fool can see it’s a shame Bobby Zamora is no longer with the club.”

    This article is obviously a hoax as there is an apostrophe missing from the headline. Perhaps players should be identified by different punctuation marks.
