Footballer given yellow card for 'breaking wind' on pitch

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

A footballer has been given a yellow card for distracting a penalty-taker’s concentration - by breaking wind.

The referee decided the Chorlton Villa player made the noise deliberately and ordered the spot-kick, which was saved, to be retaken. The second time it went in.

Then Villa's goalkeeper was sent off for saying the referee was "the worst he had seen in years."

Minutes later another Villa player was dismissed for expressing disbelief that his team-mate had been booked for flatulence.

Villa, who had another player dismissed for verbally abusing the referee, won 6-4 away against International Manchester FC in the amateur match in Stretford on Sunday.

The club now faces fines of £97 for three dismissals and two bookings.

"It's the swearing that is the problem," the referee, who asked not to be named, told the Manchester Evening News.

"The player who made the noise was booked for ungentlemanly conduct – trying to put the other player off."

Villa boss Ian Treadwell said: "My gut feeling is someone made the noise with their mouth."
