A picture described as ‘cheesy chips’ was posted on a Leyton Orient fans messaging forum yesterday (Monday) following a League One match between the two sides at Stevenage’s The Lamex Stadium in Broadhall Way.

The image was reposted on social networking website Twitter, claiming that the half-time snack cost £4, and has since been retweeted thousands of times.

Stevenage FC responded to the post via Twitter and said: “Many thanks to everyone for the cheesy chip tweets tonight. They’ve been entertaining but we camembert them any longer.

“Therefore, contrary to speculation, we can confirm that cheesy chips are not available in the away tea bar at The Lamex. Cheesy chips (not decorated with cheese from that pic) are only available in the East Terrace tea-bar and are priced at £2.50, not £4.
