This sending off could only have happened during a Non-League game

Salford City goalkeeper Max Crocombe was sent off for urinating against Bradford Park Avenue

There’s nothing worse than needing the toilet but not being able to go.

On the train, driving, err… playing a football match.

Salford City goalkeeper Max Crocombe received what can only be described as the most bizarre red card of the season to date against Bradford Park Avenue.


When you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go.

Cue a load of gags about how ‘urine trouble as soon as you leave the pitch’ and the referee ‘taking the p***’.

Non-League football at its finest.

Salford’s Twitter feed wasn’t quite as on the ball as Bradford Park’s.

Crocombe isn’t the first goalkeeper to be caught by nature’s call.

Everyone’s favourite maverick German Jens Lehmann took a quick pit stop while playing for Stuttgart.

What is it about goalkeepers?

And Gary Lineker is still reminded daily of his rather unfortunate moment against Ireland when he couldn’t hold on any more.

So Crocombe is in good company.

If only he could have held on for another two minutes he wouldn’t now be a viral sensation.
