Maccelesfield and Wycombe Teaser For Wrestlemania

As Wrestlemania 27 draws nearer, League 2 sides Macclesfield and Wycombe were nice enough to give us something to chew on this past Saturday afternoon. The match had started in a traditional fashion with both teams going at it from the off. Wycombe had taken the lead through Gareth Ainsworth on 39 minutes and it remained that way for much of the game. Then, as the match was drawing to a close we were treated to a series of rash slide tackles angering both sides. In the third and final tackle Wycombe player Ricky Sappleton lashed out on a poor Macclesfield player before we saw the match instantly transform into a WWE match with players from either side going at it like they were competing for the main event for this years Wrestlemania.

Wycombe gaffer Gary Waddock labeled it “value for money” and frankly, its hard to argue. 21 players on the pitch got involved, with 3 players getting sent off in injury time and it was most certainly the highlight of the BBC’s Football League show late on Saturday night.

About Dylan O'Neill

Football mad Irish 20-year-old. Living in Dublin so I've had a keen interest in League of Ireland for the last 2-3 years and used to write about it on offtheupright.blogspot.com, focusing mainly on UCD's limited fortunes as well as the Irish national team. I started to merge this interest with gambling two years ago to moderate success so have continued to do so since! View all posts by Dylan O'Neill
