Kidderminster Harriers decided to reply back after Matt Lucas makes a cheeky dig at the club after seeing the news on Harry Kane.
The much loved funny man and Great British Bake-Off co-host made social media users chuckle this week after poking fun at not just himself but at the National League North outfit on Twitter.
Whilst the football world try to figure out whether England international Harry Kane is going to leave Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, and where would he go, the actor and presenter tweeted that the only club who can afford his own wages are the Harriers.
He said on Twitter: “Never mind Harry Kane, the only club who can afford MY wages are Kidderminster Harriers.”
Never mind Harry Kane, the only club who can afford MY wages are Kidderminster Harriers.

In response to the jibe, the non league outfit responded by saying that his bake-off co-host Noel Fielding has already agreed to play for the club – for an Aggborough cottage pie.
The Worcestershire based side tweeted: “That awkward moment where you have to tell @RealMattLucas that @noelfielding11 has already agreed to play for an Aggborough cottage pie.”
Fair to say however while some were left laughing at the exchange, others weren’t so pleased with Kidderminster.

Fans reacted as Kidderminster reply back after Matt Lucas makes a cheeky dig at the club, see what they had to say below…
@Robpearsall1: That awkward moment when people realise you’ll message a celebrity but not your own season ticket holders
@GouldDick: A really good point Rob they have no idea how to deal with people
@smokestak: Be good to have you onboard at the Aggborough. My house is a 5min walk away so you could kip on the sofa. You’d need a visitor’s parking permit unless you come by train
@CllrLeigh: We’d have you at Kiddy with open arms, Matt!
@disco_shippers: Some of the best football food ever! Pies are ace, inc Cottage pies, but forever legendary on a cold Tuesday night will be their Aggborough Soup!
@BrianParnell60: Reasonable charges plus some little extras on the side?
@AGFrenchy: Random, but welcome! @khfcofficial
@BrianBlack2: @mrjamesob are in for topping up the wages? Come on fella, make it happen.
