Twitter goes crazy for Wayne Shaw after the 20-stone Sutton goalkeeper was spotted tucking into a pie mid-match

Twitter went crazy last night after Sutton United goalkeeper Wayne Shaw was spotted eating a pie during the second-half.

Sutton had already used all three of their substitutes, and thus Shaw knew he was not going to be needed. He took full advantage of the fact he was having a night off and went straight inside to buy himself a pie.

Shaw, who is, incredibly, 45-years-old, does not look like your archetypal footballer. He is, however, both Sutton’s goalkeeper coach and their back-up option between the sticks. No, I’m not joking, if Ross Worner picked up an injury last night, Shaw could have been facing up against Alexis Sanchez. It’s both hilarious and entirely bizarre.

The Daily Mail believes that the Sutton ‘keeper weighs in at as much as 20 stone, which is simply unthinkable for a footballer. It’s no wonder that he couldn’t wait until the end of the game to tuck into a pie.

Here’s some of the best tweets from last night:

Some, however, were less impressed with Shaw’s pie-eating antics, with one even suggesting he was merely revelling in his 15 minutes of fame. Can you blame him?
