Non-league team make rude Apprentice-style error leaving fans in stitches

A non-league team have made a rude Apprentice-style error on a poster which has left fans in stitches on social media.

National League North leaders Gateshead have been left red-faced after fans spotted a blunder on an official poster advertising that under-16s can go to their next home match for free. However, the poster's use of the slogan "every voice counts" has drawn the attention of fans, with the 'o' in counts replaced by the club's crest.

As a result, the slogan instead appears to read "every voice c****", which has left fans in stitches on Twitter after spotting the error.

One fan reacted by tweeting: “Elite marketing.” Whilst another also wrote: “Did no one look at this and think ‘this doesn’t look quite right’?”

A third fan joked: “That’s terrible lol. Once you’ve seen it you can’t unsee it.” Another felt it may have been done on purpose as they tweeted: “Fully intentional to make it reach more people imo.”

Meanwhile, a different fan compared the error to one from the latest series of the Apprentice as they added: “Gateshead’s social media team have clearly not been watching the Apprentice.”

Contestant Francesca Kennedy Wallbank made a similar mistake in a recent episode of the BBC show, as she named her team's video game "Artic Saviour".

However, Wallbank had incorrectly spelt 'arctic' in the name of the game, with the task ultimately ending in defeat and her being sacked by Lord Sugar.

It currently remains unclear whether Gateshead intentionally included their badge to cause the rude error on the poster, but it has at least created a buzz online.

The club host Southport on Saturday in their penultimate home match of the season, hoping to take another step towards promotion back to the fifth tier of English football.

Gateshead, who were relegated from the National League at the end of the 2018/19 season, are currently two points clear of Brackley Town at the top of the table with three matches remaining.
