A goalkeeper was sent off for urinating during an English football match on Saturday.
Salford keeper Max Crocombe was issued a red card for relieving himself at the home of Bradford Park Avenue in the National League North, the seventh tier of English football.
A supporter is also believed to have reported Crocombe, a 24-year-old New Zealander, to police.
“He was told by the steward twice not to do it and he went ahead and had a pee,” Bradford Park Avenue club secretary Colin Barker said. “He went to the side of the stand as I understand it. I didn’t actually see it but the referee definitely sent him off for it because he was alerted to it by his linesman.
“One of our spectators has made a formal complaint so we’re waiting to see what will happen from there. But there’s no secret about it. It’s been reported to the police.”
Salford, which won the match 2-1, is owned by businessman Peter Lim and five stars of Manchester United’s “Class of 92,” Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt.
