Boston United goalkeeper Ashley Timms, a former Manchester City trainee, has reported a ‘fake’ Twitter account to the police.
Mr Timms, who lives in Nottinghamshire, made a report to officers this afternoon. The account in question has used his picture and has made a number of imitation posts purporting to be from him.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “At 12.20pm today we received a call in relation to an online fraud. Inquiries are ongoing.”
Mr Timms signed for the Pilgrims in the summer and is the Skrill North side’s first choice goalkeeper.
