Magnetic Man to buy non-league football team?

According to reports in one tabloid rag the dubstep supergroup are in talks to buy their local non-league football club Farleigh Rovers.

The trio formed of Skream, Artwork and Benga made the announcement on Sky‘s Soccer AM on Saturday 19.

Artwork, real name Arthur Smith, from Surrey said: “I reckon we could have Farleigh in the Premier League in a few years. We’ll get them hyped up with some tunes in the dressing room before a game.”

Farleigh Rovers formed in 1922 and are based in Warlingham, Surrey. They are currently in division one of the Combined Counties Football League and have an average attendance of 41.

Team manager David Wilcocks said: “With money potentially coming, our players are afraid we’ll bring in better players from the top leagues. They’ve been out there training on a muddy pitch, trying to prove their worth.”

Magnetic Man recently completed a jaunt on the NME Awards Tour and have been confirmed for Belgium’s Rock Werchter 2011 in July and Bestival 2011 in September.
