It might be the beautiful game but the food certainly isn’t.

Football fans up and down the country have taken to social media to share the food horrors served up at stadiums during half-time, after one supporter who ordered a £2 hot dog was handed a solitary burnt sausage in an extra-large bap.

The snack, which was less a hot dog and more a dog’s dinner, was sold to Spurs fan George Tucker while he was watching non-league side Frome Town FC, in Somerset. 

Mr Tucker tweeted: ‘Got myself a hot dog today @FromeTownFC and this is what I got!!! £2 I’ll never get back.’ 

The miserable meal sparked a hilarious reaction from fellow fans sharing their own culinary disappointments, ranging from pitiful pies to not-so-cheesy chips.

Embarrassed by their sorry offering, the red-faced Southern League Division One South side messaged Mr Tucker blaming the poor food on a new member of staff. 

A representative said: ‘That’s embarrassing. Free ticket and a burger next time you come over just let me know. It was a new member of staff, sorry!’ 

George then replied: ‘Thank you! That’s a very kind gesture.’
