Just when Seaford Town thought it could not get any worse for them, controversial football pundit Robbie Savage sticks the boot in.

Savage mocked the County League division two stugglers who are rock bottom of their league and have not won, or even gained a draw, this season.

The ex-Welsh international teased Seaford on Radio 5 Live for having a worse goal record than Premier League outfit Aston Villa who are 662 places above them in the football pyramid.

Seaford, managed by Ben Barnett, have scored just 10 goals this season, one less than Villa have managed, and have conceded on average three goals per game.

Seaford chairman Bob Thompsett said, “We are not playing as badly as our record suggests and we’ve signed some new players so we just want to get a result.

“We have a really good club down here after we were in dire straits financially about five years ago, which we have addressed. We just cannot seem to find the recipe on the pitch.”

Thompsett also said he has tried to arrange a friendly against another club in the country who also have a terrible record.

Stewart and Lloyds Corby Football Club are from Northamptonshire and have lost 24 games scoring 16 but conceding 96.

Chairman Thompsett added, “It’d be great to meet them halfway to see who is the worst team in the country.”

Since 2008 Seaford have gone through six managers in as many years.

Barnett and his men will have the opportunity to gain their first victory on Saturday as they welcome Rustington to the Crouch.

A few goals could lift them above Villa as the lowest scoring team in the English football league, but would it be enough to keep Savage quiet?
