Goalkeeper sent off for confronting fan who allegedly urinated in his drink | Soccer

Non-league player Tony Thompson has been ‘fallen ill’ after a fan allegedly urinated in his drinking bottle during an FA Trophy tie. The Warrington Town goalkeeper was furious after being sent off for clashing with the supporter behind his goal in the 1-0 home defeat to Guiseley.

“Today I fell in love with the game,” Thompson wrote on Twitter. “I’ve been called a lot of names, but someone pissing in my bottle, I drink it and then they tell me I had no right to react because I’m a player, it’s This person has put my family’s health at risk and made me sick.

The incident led to a lengthy stoppage as the players clashed with fans behind the goal at Warrington’s Cantilever Park.

Warrington manager Mark Beesley felt the match official made the wrong decision. “Guiseley staff have apologized – it was disgusting and there is no place in life for things like this,” he told the Warrington Guardian. “I think the referee completely lost control after that. If someone urinates in my bottle and I drink it, I’m going to throw it away. Sending him off for throwing the bottle away is a disgrace.

“The referee has to use common sense – I can’t understand that. From our perspective, the welfare of our players is paramount and what Tony was subjected to was shameful. Whoever did it should hang their heads in shame and never be allowed to participate in a football game again.

Warrington had tweeted during the match: “An outside fan apparently urinated in his water bottle, then when Thompson squirted it on said ‘fan’ after finding out he was kicked out.”
