Dunfermline See Funny Side of BBC’s Dunfermline United Mistake

Dunfermline See Funny Side of BBC’s Dunfermline United Mistake

Dunfermline have seen the funny side of BBC mistakenly calling them Dunfermline United on TV.

The Pars were made aware of the error by former Scottish Sun editor and current Radio X presenter Gordon Smart – who is also the son-in-law of club legend Jim Leishman.

Fair play to Dunfermline for seeing the funny side of it rather than get precious over the mistake. But must do better next time, BBC.
