Things got a little bit awkward for a local football club at the weekend when they were the victims of an auto-correct blooper.

In the last half an hour of the game, Stourbridge FC tweeted that player Thompson-Brown 'shoots wife' from 20 yards.

We can only imagine they meant to say 'shoots wide'...

Realising the mistake, fans were quick to react. Since Saturday, there have been more than 700 retweets and more than 1,500 likes to the tweet.

Luckily Stourbridge FC saw the funny side. They replied that 'no wives were harmed' during the game.
