An amateur football club in Angers has complained after being regularly confused with its professional counterpart, mainly by English clubs looking to recruit.

Since its establishment in 2008, the Angers Football-club has been constantly muddled up with Angers Sporting club de l’Ouest, or Angers Sco.

Comprised of mainly weekend players, Angers Football-club is in the D2 league of the district championship – or 10 leagues below that of Angers Sco in league 2.

The amateur team has even been solicited by professional clubs in England for coaches and players. Earlier this summer they received a letter from Bolton saying: “Our team is looking for players and coaches. We would like to recruit you to take part in the 2012-2013 season.”

They have also had phone calls from Tottenham Hotspurs with similar offers.
