    Despite preserving his modesty by going inside a hedge, the No1 was sent off after rival players alerted the ref.

    The incident came in the 76th minute of a 0-0 first qualifying round draw between Connor’s team, Blackfield & Langley, and Shepton Mallet.

    His co-manager Conor McCarthy was “gobsmacked” by Saturday’s dismissal.

    He said: “Sometimes when you have to go you have to go.”

    The Hampshire-based Wessex League club’s Twitter account joked ahead of the replay: “See you Tuesday evening (hopefully get plenty of toilet breaks en route).”

    Shepton Mallet, from Somerset, quipped: “After an unusual red card in the first tie, we’re looking for a match sponsor. Plumbers or portaloo firms, take advantage!”

    It is believed to be the first red card for weeing in the FA Cup’s 150 years.

    Connor may now seek a move to Loo-ton Town.
