Salford City goalkeeper Max Crocombe sent off for URINATING during non-league clash against Bradford Park Avenue

SALFORD CITY goalkeeper Max Crocombe was shown a red card for URINATING during the 2-1 win against Bradford Park Avenue.

The bizarre incident happened in the closing stages of a Vanarama National League North clash at Horsfall Stadium, putting a dampener on the Class of 92’s side’s victory.

There was confusion over why the shot-stopper was given his marching orders by the referee, with both clubs taking to Twitter.

Bradford Park tweeted: “86′ – RED CARD! This is bizarre. Salford goalkeeper Max Crocombe has been dismissed and no one knows why…”

While Salford said: “88: Red Card! Crocombe see red for something off the ball. No one has a clue what has happened. 1-2.”

But in a follow up message, Bradford Park revealed the true reason why he was sent off, as they said: “87′ – We can confirm that Crocombe has been sent off for urinating during the game. We are not joking. #greenarmy (1-2).”

It is unclear where Crocombe went to relieve himself, but his decision not to hold it in was met with anger from the referee.

The 24-year-old only joined Salford City back in May, and will now face a suspension for the act.

Crocombe has represented New Zealand on ten occasions in their their youth sides.

His past clubs include Oxford United, Barnet and Carlisle United.
