Non-League star forced to missed training as he has to BUTCHER a cow – The Sun

A NON-LEAGUE striker was forced to miss training because he had to BUTCHER a cow.

Atherton Collieries forward Tom Bentham text his manager to let him know he could not make training.

Bentham, a butcher, explained he had to “work” on a cow, and would not be able to moo-ve his commitment.

Believing his player was milking it, manager Michael Clegg told the striker to take the night off – and revealed the messages on Twitter.

Bentham said: “Clegg’s I think I’m going to be working till like 11 tonight mate got a full cow to do on a farm and it needs doing today after work.”

Clegg replied: “Have night off coz that's best excuse ive ever heard. That's going on Twitter.”

To which the player responded: “I’m serious gaffer I’ll send pictures in the group.”

Clearly having no beef with the situation, the manager sent a cow emoji back.

Fans online loved the exchange, throwing in plenty of puns.

One said: "cant be missing training! steaks are too high."

Another said: "Sounds like there's some beef there."

One added: "I think you should try and moove him on to another club."
