Telford Terry Prefers Drugs to Football.

Terry Fearns (White shirt), on his way down?

Non-league striker Terry Fearns has been sacked by AFC Telford of the Blue Square North, after being arrested on the suspicion of selling drugs. The Former Wigan trainee and Southport player had been a consistent goalscorer in the amateur leagues before his fall from grace.

It appears that it was not just the drug arrest that saw Fearns fired. He was suspended recently after failing to show up for training AND a home game.

The Police raided Fearns home back on March 9th. He was bailed to appear in front of police again sometime in May. The player has not been charged yet.

Fearns was a success at Vauxhall motors (111 goals) and at Southport, scoring 41 goals in 2005 to see the team promoted. The following year the net bulged less and Southport flogged him to Droylsden. He has scored 17 goals for AFC Telford this season.

It appears that Terry may now have to settle for scoring goals in jail. Who says non-league football is boring!
