GRIMSBY youngster Harry Shipstone has gathered support from fans after asking to be included in the new Football Manager game.
FM24 will be released on November 6, but those who secured early access were able to play the beta version of the game as early as October 19.
And Grimsby academy prospect Shipstone was disappointed to see he does not feature on it.
In a bid to get himself on the game, he messaged the Twitter account "Out of Contest Football Manager" which has more than 300,000 followers.
He said: "You probably won't see this but if you do and you know anyone at Football Manager please could you contact them to try and sort it for me.
"I am a young footballer who plays for Grimsby Town's youth team and when I went on the new beta version I was not on it.

"I had been looking forward to this moment since I found out I would be playing for the youth team so it is very upsetting to see that I am not even in the squad.
"Any help you can provide would be appreciated."
Out of Context Football Manager posted a screenshot of Shipstone's message along with the caption: "GET THIS MAN IN THE GAME."
And the official Football Manager Twitter replied to the post.
