MP Spencer ready for the call at Forest after gracing Man Utd venue

HUCKNALL’S Conservative MP, Mark Spencer, has joked that he is waiting for the call to become Nottingham Forest’s new boss — after taking part in a special football match!

Forest have parted company with ex-England boss Steve McClaren after a run of similar results to that suffered by Mr Spencer and his team of Parliamentary colleagues, who went down 4-1, to a side made up of Pressmen.

The annual match took place at Manchester United’s famous Cliff Training Ground in Salford during the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester.

The venue was once central to United’s first-team training until 1999 when manager Sir Alex Ferguson decided it was too open to the public and Press.

Forest fan Mr Spencer, who played 20 minutes of each half, said: “It was a bit of fun but it was all taken pretty seriously.” He later said on Twitter: “Following my performance, I am awaiting a call to be player/manager of Nottingham Forest!”
