FA Cup 22/23

In what might be an FA Cup first, a goalkeeper was sent off for "urinating in a hedge" during a match.

The keeper in question is Connor Maseko of Hampshire side Blackfield & Langley FC, who play in the ninth-tier Wessex League.

The incident occurred in the 76th minute of their 0-0 draw with Somerset side Shepton Mallet FC in Saturday's FA Cup first qualifying round tie.

"The ball went out for a goal kick," Blackfield & Langley FC co-manager Conor McCarthy told BBC Sport.

"He needed to go to the toilet so he went up against a hedge and their players started shouting saying 'what's he doing?' to the ref. The ref went up to him and decided to send him off.

"He (Maseko) protected himself. He was inside the hedge. Sometimes when you have to go you have to go.

  • Great result for Beckenham yesterday... Won 2-1 @ Dartford

    Dartford did end the game with nine men, after one got injured, then one got sent off at the death

    But was 1-1 before they went down to ten.

    Beckenham Town are having a great season, shock cup win and top of the league. I'm considering dropping Charlton this season and following them instead.

    Welling got through to the 3rd Qualifying Round after a 3-0 replay win @ Fisher last night

    Although now have a tough upcoming tie at fellow National League South side: Weymouth

    There are currently seven sides left from Level 9 - One of Anstey Nomads or Shefford Town & Campton will be guaranteed a spot in the 4th and final Qualifying Round, whilst AFC Bury still have to face Lancaster City (L7) in a replay.

    The other remaining sides from Level Nine are:
    • Congleton Town
    • Ashington
    • Romford
    • Helston Athletic

    Based on current form would have thought Welling would be favourites. Currently Weymouth are bottom of the league with only 2 draws. Welling are in 5th with 4 wins from their last 5.
