Footballer caught on Tinder on team coach, responds by saying it actually 'worked'
| Last updated
A footballer who was caught using Tinder on the team coach says 'it worked'.
The club were on their way down to play Eastbourne Borough on Saturday (4 February), when the defender thought he'd use his time wisely and see if he could find 'the one'.
But rather than being able to go about his business in private, as most of us would, a snap was taken of all the lads on the coach and it quickly began doing the rounds on social media.
In the pic, Jay can seen with his back to the camera and his phone in his hand.
On closer inspection, Jay can clearly be seen having a good old swipe, sifting through a list of potential suitors.
The photo was then posted to Twitter by the club's official photographer.
Not mentioning the massive elephant in the room, she captioned it: "GAME DAY and we are back on the road… "
But it didn't take long for the club to do him over and post the photo to its official Twitter account.
Wishing him the best of luck on his romantic endeavours, Taunton's account joked: "Hopefully Jay’s tinder is working its magic off the pitch whilst he does so on the pitch."
And according to the man himself, it seems to have done just that.
Retweeting the post, Jay assured his followers that he was onto a winner.
Alongside the 'tick' emoji, he wrote: "It worked."
Since he shared the good news, people have been keen for an update.
"We need to know what happened next... " said one follower.
But like any gentleman worth his salt, the player wasn't one to kiss and tell, so we'll just have to take his word for it.
If he does find himself struggling for a date, though, Jay could always contact James Langton, who knows a thing or two about the online game.
James is apparently one of the most swiped right people on Tinder, and recently launched his own dating consultancy app, Dater Help.
Taking part in a Reddit AMA, James was asked what he thinks helps him get so many matches.
To which he replied: "I think it's a mixture of everything, but having photos that portray a story and a bio that's informative with a clear 'call to action' (reason why someone should match and speak to me)."
So there you go, if you want more matches, all you need to do is get some snaps that tell a bit of a story and maybe take another look at your bio to ensure it's calling out to potential dates.
Or, if you're a footballer, just get your club to post a photo of you scrolling through Tinder all over social media. Works wonders by the sound of it.
