Non-league goalkeeper drinks from water bottle that fan ‘urinated in’, before being sent off for squirting it in the supporter’s face during FA Trophy clash

    A non-league goalkeeper was sent off on Saturday following an altercation with a fan who he claimed had urinated in his water bottle shortly before he drank from it.

    Warrington Town goalkeeper Tony Thompson was dismissed in the 61st minute of his side’s FA Trophy clash with Guiseley following an incident with a supporter after Thompson squirted the ‘water’ in the face of the fan in question.

    With the tie evenly poised at 0-0, the game took a turn for the worse after Thompson was given his marching orders in what Warrington boss Mark Beesley has described as a ‘disgrace’.

    Players confronted fans behind the goal and the supporter was eventually ejected from the ground.

    A post on Warrington’s Twitter account read: “Just managed to catch Thompson on his way back in [to the changing room]. An away fan has apparently urinated in his water bottle, and then when Thompson has squirted it at said ‘fan’ after finding out, he’s been sent off.”

    Warrington were beaten 1-0 thanks to a last-minute goal from Guiseley’s Lewis Whitham but the game will be remembered for the disgusting incident in which Thompson admitted he had been ‘knocked sick’.

    “Today I fell out of love with the game,” Thompson tweeted.
    “I’ve been called many names but for someone to p*** in my bottle, for me to drink it and then to be told I wasn’t allowed to react because I’m a player is outrageous.

    “That person has put me my family’s health at risk and knocked me sick.”

    The incident led to a long stoppage at Warrington’s Cantilever Park and after the game Beesley revealed that he had received an apology from Guiseley.

    “The Guiseley staff apologised – it was disgusting and there’s no place in life for things like that,” he told the Warrington Guardian.

    “I think the referee has completely lost control after that – if someone urinates in my bottle and I drink it, I’m going to throw it away. To send him off for throwing the bottle away is a disgrace.

    “The referee has to see common sense – I can’t understand it.

    “From our point of view, the welfare of our players is paramount and what Tony was subjected to was disgraceful.

    “Whoever did it should hang their head in shame and never be allowed into a football game again.”
