    Even Mr Clifford admits everything before has been a publicity stunt. Neighbours Leeds are getting big crowds back in the Championship, so what better way to get the punters in for home games for the next 3 Tuesdays. See you in Mineiros Bar? No thanks.

    Simon Clifford is a joke. He says that it was not a publicity stunt, but go on Garforth Towns website and look at the news articles that the club has decided to include on its website.

I hope Gazza sees sense and stays away!
