Linesman Forgets Boots For Tranmere vs Morecambe Game, Wears Smart Shoes Instead

Linesman Forgets Boots For Tranmere vs Morecambe Game, Wears Smart Shoes Instead

Let's begin this article with a throwback. You turn up to a P.E lesson in the height of winter to realise you've forgotten a pair of boots. Cheers Mum, son's crying.

Joking aside it's the stuff of nightmare, and the only solution for this disastrous mistake is to wear your school shoes. You could browse the dreaded lost and found box but that would be the ultimate sacrifice. It was going to be a long, painful lesson.

But that being said, a pair of these beauty's would easily bag you a trial at West Ham.

As you reminisce about those magical school days, spare a thought this League Two linesman, who clearly picked up a lesson or two back in school after he forgot his boots during Tranmere's win over Morecambe.

Scott Oldham's assistant decided to take things into his own hands and run the line in his smart shoes. GENIUS!

Twitter user Grant White, who originally posted the image to social media, questioned whether he had a note for his lack of appropriate footwear. Let's hope he did.

These smart shoe antics at Prenton Park on Boxing Day certainly got people as Cole Stockton, James Norwood and Jay Harris found the net in an easy win for Tranmere over their League Two counterparts.

Take it away, Twitter:

We feel your pain, Mr Linesman but don't worry. You've just rekindled many school memories at the most wonderful time of the year.

And for that we thank you.
