TWITTER PRANKSTERS DUPE SKY SPORTS ON TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY WITH FAKE TRANSFER

first_imgA Twitter prank involving players from Buncrana Hearts FC has gone viral after they managed to dupe Sky Sports sources into thinking their friend had agreed terms with Exeter City.Transfer deadline days are usually one of the most exciting in the footballing calendar, with managers and chairmen looking for a quick fix to either rubber stamp success or divert themselves away from danger. It can make for great TV with some clubs forced into panic-buying.Remember 2011 – Andy Carroll to Liverpool for £35 Million and Fernando Torres to Chelsea for £50.While this particular transfer window was a damp squib in contrast to other years, one move which caused quite a stir was the shock transfer of Buncrana Hearts star Kieran McDaid to Exeter City.What started out as a good laugh on Twitter quickly descended into a real-life rumour that had Exeter City supporters and Sky Sports sources believing the move was a legitimate one. McDaid’s mates started tweeting him messages of good luck and tagged Exeter City into the post.The messages were constant throughout the evening and that’s when supporters at Exeter began tweeting McDaid back wishing him all the best at his new club.If that wasn’t good enough for the pranksters the icing on the cake came when Sky Sports broke news of the ‘fake transfer’ on their website. (See photo above)What a brilliant prank, well played boys, Jim White would be proud. 🙂TWITTER PRANKSTERS DUPE SKY SPORTS ON TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY WITH FAKE TRANSFER was last modified: February 3rd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncrana hearts.Exeter CitynewsPranksky sportsSportTwitterlast_img read more
