I have seen allegations on social media that Flying Start/Ricky Nixon have been selling signed footballs from the Dees premiership side, that were not actually signed by the players. The footballs have a "certificate of authenticity" with Ricky Nixon's signature on it.

Apparently one of the give aways was that "Charlie Spargo" put a number 8 with his signature.

Would have taken him about 20 seconds to set this up and print

That Flying Start COA's a joke, looks like it was made using Microsoft Office '98.. & printed off the cheapest little canon printer you can get..

I feel really sorry for the inexperienced collectors who bought off him during the heights of their premiership celebrations. They need to make the bastard pay for this, it's an absolute filthy dog-act.
