All the lads: No.

A.Young: Look at our kits.

*Harewood scratches his head looking around at all the claret and blue then down to his own, tangerine shirt*

Harewood: Wait a minute ….. Did I just play in goal?

A.Young: No, you were…

Harewood: Was I referee!? Wow …. FIFA will probably have something to say about me scoring eh?

*A.Young buries his face in his hands and sighs*
