Football Fan Nearly Thrown Out Of Stadium For Texting By 'Undercover Security Guard'

A football fan has detailed his experience on Saturday afternoon during Hull City's 2-1 win over Reading, where he was threatened with being thrown out of the ground for texting during the match.

Hull fan Daniel Mawer took to Twitter to explain in a thread how someone in plain clothing came up to him to warn him not to text.

According to the 'skint northerner' he was warned he could be thrown out of the ground because his texts might be informing gamblers of insider information of what was going on, utterly bizarre.

It seems crazy to think that people inside the ground could in anyway help to influence the way someone gambles on a match, anymore than the information available from journalists and the clubs' own social media output.

Has anyone else experienced anything as ridiculous?
