Watch: Player sees red after tackling streaker

Dorchester player-manager Ashley Vickers was sent off last night after wrestling a pitch invader to the ground.

A NON-LEAGUE FOOTBALL player has been sent off for tackling a scantilly-clad pitch invader during an English sixth-tier match.

Dorchester player-manager Ashley Vickers was red-carded for violent conduct after ending the intruder’s 30-second jaunt with a thudding tackle in the 70th minute of Monday’s game against Havant & Waterlooville.

Vickers says “the funny thing was, the stewards actually thanked me for it. But the ref decided to send me off and it beggars belief.”

To add insult to injury, Dorchester lost the match 3-1 — having been level at 1-1 before the intruder, who was wearing nothing but a bright green “mankini” thong and curly black wig, ran onto the field.

Havant have banned the perpetrator from their stadium.
