It was a tongue in cheek comment - taken completely out of context by the BBC.

That's the response from Dorchester Town Football Club to a story that claimed Magpies boss Phil Simkin may have to play this weekend.

The remark was made surrounding news that financial problems mean Dorchester will have to cut their player budget.

A statement on the Magpies Facebook page says Phil Simkin will not be available for selection on Saturday against Dover Athletic and apologises for any distress his throw away remark has caused.
