From Stray Given to Dwight Yorkie, the best dog pun football team

Around events such as Halloween and Christmas, many football fans put together themed starting line-ups to much success.

With dogs being one of the UK’s most loved animals, we felt it was high time our four-legged friends got the same treatment and were given their own football team to support.

Whether we’ll see them turning out for the likes of Pawsmouth, Wooferhampton Wanderers, FC Barkalona or Barkick Thistle while getting player ratings from Der Beagle is anyone’s guess.

But for now, here's the best team you'll see in a long time for whom winning the league would be a walk in the park…
