Sun praises Swindon Advertiser Subbuteo ploy

The Sun today features the clever away the Swindon Advertiser got round the ban by Southampton Football Club on its photographers covering the match against Swindon Town — by using Subbuteo.
The Sun has run a story in the paper describing the move to use the Subbuteo figures to depict the action as "finger-flickin' good!". It has also put the Advertiser's Subbuteo pictures online.
The story gives the Sun another chance to give Southampton - which it refers to only as "South Coast Club" - another kicking: "A once-proud South Coast Club have stopped local and national newspaper photographers attending home games. The ludicrous decision by executive chairman Nicola Cortese has led to SunSport refusing to name them."
