An English soccer player ate some cookies on the field

Wednesday December 17th, 2014


Chester fullback Gareth Roberts needed a boost during Tuesday's FA Cup match against Barnsley, so someone threw him a sleeve of cookies. 

Roberts started munching down on the Jaffa cakes, an orange-flavored sponge cake, but the referee insisted it wasn't snack time. Roberts offered them to the ref, but he politely declined. Roberts passed a few to his teammates and opponents before stuffing the empty packaging in his sock.

Chester was trailing 3-0 at the time and the biscuit break couldn't reverse their fortunes.
