Scunthorpe United has apologised to 2,000 fans for rather unfortunately dropping the "S" from the club's name in a personalised 2011 calendar, the Sun reports.
According to the paper, the £12.99 calendar "each month shows photos of the Championship club's players as well as prominently displaying the fan's name".
Fan Jamie Muir got one as a Xmas present from his mum, but when he flicked through to September, he was "stunned" to find that a hoarding which should have declared "Jamie Muir, Scunthorpe United Number 1 Fan", was missing the crucial letter.
Pub landlord Muir said: "I had to rub my eyes. I thought I was seeing things. Initially, I thought the publishers had made a mistake with mine."
In fact, a grovelling letter of apology from the club showed that Muir wasn't the only victim of the outrage. The missive included a correctional sticker to cover the offending omission, but Muir chuckled: "They asked us to put it over the mistake, but I reckon I'll keep it as it is!"
Michelle Harness, speaking for the "tupid ods" down at Scunthorpe, offered: "It was an unfortunate error." ®
