Cuts for dog reporters

As part of its economy drive, Charlton is to cut the half time provision of dog biscuits for canine reporters. A club spokesperson said, 'Whilst the savings will not be huge, all departments of the club have to take their share of the cuts that result from relegation. Providing specialist biscuits for dog reporters was an extra demand on management time.'

'Dog reporters are welcome to take their share of the biscuits provided for human jouros, although in future these will be plain digestives rather than chocolate.'

The Association of Canine Match Analyts was not impressed. President Homer the Cherry Hound said: 'Human journos will accuse us of snatching biscuits off plates and wolfing them down. Charlton has been at the forefront of provision for dog supporters in the past, but this is a retrograde step.'
