Club clarify which players are tweeters!

Due to a number of fake player and club official Twitter accounts appearing recently, the club wish to confirm which players and staff have genuine Twitter pages. 

We are also working with Twitter to ensure that all first team player accounts have the blue verification tick (right) and we can confirm that all of the following accounts are the genuine accounts of the players.

As a rule - if they have the blue tick, it's really them!
