AFC Telford defender James Hurst argues with fans via Twitter

Sport | Published:

AFC Telford United defender James Hurst was embroiled in a spat with supporters over social media following the side's loss to Salford City.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Bucks over the summer, was sent off in the game at the New Bucks Head for two bookable offences.

His first yellow card was just prior to half-time for dissent, while the second was for a late challenge just after the hour mark.

A section of the travelling supporters ironically cheered Hurst, who responded with a smile, a thumbs up and a bow as he made his way to the dressing room.

Following the game, Hurst tweeted: "Just when football becomes bearable you get a little ruducer (sic)."

The former West Bromwich Albion defender was then engaged in an exchange with a number of supporters and wrote a series of posts.

In one, Hurst wrote "I feel like a surgeon stacking shelfs in this league (sic)."

In another post to the same supporter, he wrote: "u paid to watch me today (sic)."

Hurst then went on to delete the tweets from his verified @hursty43 account but did post on Sunday: "Oh god what happened I can say some NAUGHTY things to trolls (sic)."
