A Guiseley FC fan was caught urinating in the bottle of the Warrington Town FC goalkeeper during a match between the two sides this weekend.
CCTV and Snapchat footage shared on social media verified the incident which occurred on Saturday, 19 November at the Cheshire club’s Cantilever Park.
The video below shows the opposition fan jumping onto the pitch and swapping the Warrington Town keeper’s bottle with another which he is said to have urinated in.
The clip has been labelled by hundreds online as “grim”, “vile” and “disgusting”.
As visiting team Guiseley confirmed in the above statement, they “unreservedly condemn this disgraceful action” and reassured that this does not alight with their “family-friendly football club” value, nor does it reflect their “core of regular and committed travelling supporters.
The West Yorkshire side went on to say that while they are investigating the incident, they do not currently have any information regarding the identity of the individual in question.
As for Warrington Town FC goalkeeper Tony Thompson, he said:”Today I fell out of love with the GAME!” He went on to add that he was told he could not react to the unruly supporter because was a player. He described the entire altercation as “outrageous”.
Much to Thompson’s disappointment, he was ultimately sent off in their 1-0 defeat after he responded by spraying the bottle back in the fan‘s direction.
The veteran Warrington Town keeper reiterated that the unidentified male’s actions go far beyond verbal abuse, declaring that he put “me and my family’s health at risk and [has] knocked me sick.”
Warrington are yet to issue an official statement regarding the incident but will be working alongside Guiseley AFC to find the culprit and serve him a lifetime ban for all future fixtures of both teams.

Police issue update after Sterling flies home from World Cup following home invasion
Surrey Police have issued an update following Raheem Sterling’s home invasion that has forced the England international to fly home from the 2022 World Cup.
The former Manchester City star was left out of the Three Lions squad against Senegal due to a “family matter” on Sunday before the exact circumstances were confirmed shortly after.
Authorities have now verified that hundreds of thousands of pounds of goods had been stolen from the property but that, fortunately, “no threat of violence was involved”.
Sterling flew just hours after hearing of the break-in at his home Leatherhead home where he lives with his fiancé and two children.
Manager Gareth Southgate could not confirm whether the Chelsea player will be returning to the squad, insisting that, obviously, “the priority is for him to be with his family” and that they will “give him as much time as he needs”.
The police force said in a statement: “We are currently investigating a report of a burglary at an address in Oxshott, Leatherhead.
“Police were contacted just before 9pm on Saturday, December 3rd after the occupants of the property came home and discovered a number of items including jewellery and watches had been stolen.
“Inquiries to establish the circumstances are underway and the investigation is ongoing. No threat of violence was involved as the items were discovered stolen retrospectively. Inquiries into the circumstances are ongoing.”
Grealish holds his hands up over Almirón dig: ‘I do stupid stuff’
Jack Grealish has finally held his hands up after mocking Miguel Almirón, assuring that while he has made mistakes in career, he has a “good heart”.
Speaking to the media at the national camp in Qatar, the footballer was asked about his now-infamous dig at the Newcastle player, quipping that teammate Riyad Mahrez “played like Almirón” in a sub-par performance during Manchester City‘s 2021/22 title-winning match back in May.
Ironically, Grealish‘s Almiron joke has preceded an incredible run of form from the winger this year, arguably being their player of the season with eight goals to his name already.
Despite the 28-year-old insisting he has “never really paid attention” to what people say about him, he will have inevitably seen the viral clip.
Nevertheless, the England and City star took accountability for the unnecessary outburst, confessing, “I do stupid stuff, that was one”, whilst assuring: “Obviously I’ve done stupid stuff in my life but I think everything that I do good is from my heart.”
The 27-year-old went on to say that describe his Premier League peer as a “great player”, adding: “what a guy… if that was me and somebody had said that about me, I’d have probably been the other way and been like: ‘f*** it'”.
While he said he didn’t think the drunken video would go public, he knows it wasn’t the most professional of moments and that not only is he “buzzing” to see Almirón playing so well but that he will be sure to “show him the most respect” the next time they meet on the pitch.
